Sheriff: Couple abandons child to play Pokemon Go

SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. - The Pinal County Sheriff's Office says a San Tan Valley couple left their 2-year-old son home alone while they drove around playing Pokemon.

PCSO investigators say Brent Daley, 27, and Brianne Daley, 25, admitted to leaving the child alone for two hours while they were out playing the game.

A neighbor called 911 when the boy was spotted outside crying about 10:30 p.m. on July 28. When PCSO deputies got to the home, they say the boy was in the front yard trying to get in the front door of the home.

Investigators say he was barefoot with only a diaper and T-shirt on.

The couple returned home about an hour later and were arrested on allegations of child neglect and endangerment, the sheriff's office said.
