Dad joked about pawning his baby but cops took it seriously...


Some things you shouldn't joke about...someone may take you seriously. Forty-three-year-old Brian Slocum walked into A&F Pawn Jewelry and Loan in Sarasota, Florida and asked if he could pawn a baby. The owner was speechless, and asked Slocum what he could do for him, and the man repeated himself two more times. Slocum then picked up the baby carrier and started to leave the store. The store owner told police that as he was leaving the store he said, "I just need a babysitter for like two weeks." Slocum later told police that the whole incident was a prank, but police had already used many resources to make sure the child was safe. No charges were filed.
