Pasco County, Florida -- A man has been arrested for leaving his 10-year-old son in a truck while he went to a bar.

Raymond Ellison left his son inside a locked pickup truck while he went inside Happy Dayz Bar on U.S. Highway 301 in Dade City. Deputies with the Pasco Sheriff's Office responded to the bar just after midnight on Sunday in reference to complaints about a child hiding in a locked vehicle.

Wow: Dad caught with whiskey in car seat instead of child

Once deputies arrived, they found the truck with the boy inside. The boy would not open the door because he was instructed by his father not to open the door for anyone.

Eventually Ellison was located, taken into custody and transported to the Land O' Lakes Detention Center.

The child is in the care of relatives.
