Father Arrested After Leaving Toddler in Car at Brothel Parking Lot

PATRICK, Nev. — An Oregon rugby player remains in jail Tuesday after being arrested on charges he left his 2-year-old daughter in a vehicle in the parking lot of a Nevada brothel on a 95-degree day.

Lucien Hoffman, of Bend, Ore., is being held in the Storey County Detention Center in lieu of $40,000 bail on charges of child neglect.

Police arrested Hoffman early Sunday night at the World Famous Mustang Ranch brothel in Sparks, Nev., after a security guard found the child crying inside the car, according to Storey County Sheriff's Det./Sgt. Kenneth Quirk.

Hoffman, a wing for Bend Rugby who goes by the nicknames Luke and "Torpedo," had been attending a pool party and barbecue at the brothel, a co-sponsor of a Labor Day weekend rugby tournament in Reno organized by the Reno Zephyrs Rugby Club.

A handful of Bend Rugby team members had driven to the brothel party in a camper van, according to the club's president, Matt Burke. Neither coaching staff nor team captains attended the event, he said.

"We won the tournament, so I think half of the people in the club got in their cars and started driving home and a few went to the after-tournament function to receive the trophy," said Burke, who did not attend the Nevada tournament.

Quirk said that had the child been noticed by the brothel security guard, Hoffman's vehicle wouldn't have been allowed in. When security guards did hear her crying and couldn't locate her parents, they contacted the sheriff's office and took the child inside the brothel.

"It was 95 degrees out at that time of day, and you have to figure another 30 degrees on top of that inside a vehicle even with the windows down," Quirk said.

According to the Reno Rugby Club's Web site, the brothel pool party was an after-event for its first "Biggest Little Rugby Tournament in the World," a two-day competition drawing 14 rugby teams from around the West Coast.

Hoffman attended the tournament with his girlfriend, a woman who is not the mother of the 2-year-old toddler. Hoffman shares joint custody of the child with her biological mother.

"It was probably not a good decision to take the child [to Nevada] in the first place, but basically it was sort of like a vacation for them," Burke said.

After Hoffman's arrest, the toddler was treated for dehydration and released to the Nevada Division of Child and Family Services. She was returned to her mother in Bend, Ore.

Burke called Hoffman a good father who made a bad decision.

"We know Luke to be a good father," he said. "He's not a neglectful person or an irresponsible parent. It's unfortunate that he made the decision that he did to put here in the car, but I'm sure the decision wasn't arrived at in a neglectful manner or that he was intentionally being neglectful."

moron :boba:
 
This story reminded me of a case I saw on a spanish court tv show..The Dad was drinkin at an outside bar type of place and he left his kids in the car by themselves across the street in the car but with the windows down some. The person that videotaped it, the kids were just screamin for his dad to take them outta the car cuz their faces were all red. One of the little boys managed to come out and he ran across the street to get his dad & then he just shoved him back in and continued drinking his damn beer. In all that time, like 2 hours passed by before he left.

Some people don't deserve children...and yet we let morons breed.

Yeah...He's an idiot. I think the judge ordered that he not see his kids for like a year or a restraining order until he got his act together.
 
When your vices jeopardize other people, it's time to take a step back.
 
He left the windows down, kids are such *****es nowadays.
 
Way to set a good example, Dad. Even if the temp. wasn't high, what kind of Dad goes off and leaves a kid in the car?
 
Why is this back in the news? I heard about this over the summer then it's on Fox news again today?? Must be a slow news day.

Wow, I never thought I'd see a mod post a story that was over three months old. No offence Morg, just sayin'.
 
Morg, why do you always post these disturbing news stories?
Do you really get off on them, or do you get a cozy feeling knowing that no matter what, at least you know that you're better than these people in the stories, or what?

I don't get it.
I would understand if there was a really amazingly anomalous one, but, negligent parents leave their kid in the car all the time.

And then, if there was some interesting commentary you had to offer, I'd understand that, but you always just say, "What a moron", or something.
It's eerie.

And with a lot of them, there isn't really any room for discussion.
It's just like a ritual...everyone reports in to say

"What a sick-O"
"I hope they fry that guy."
"My prayers go out to the family. :("
"What is WRONG with people?! :mad:"


As if, we all don't already know, that, yeah, if you do something terrible, you're terrible.

:huh:
 
Morg just likes to bring us down. We're skipping around through forests of candy and unicorns, and then just to remind us the world sucks, Morg comes along with "man rapes teddy bear and makes toddler watch!"


Uber killjoy.
 
I remember my dad leaving me in his truck while he went inside a bar to have some beer. He was in there for a couple of hours and I was about 10 years old. I wasn't scared, but I remember being VERY bored waiting for him. I should have told someone back then. There's no way I'd do anything like that to my son.
