Seminole Tribe arrests man who left children in casino lot

Police from the Seminole Tribe of Florida arrested a man who allegedly left his children in a car in a casino parking lot for more than an hour.

Anthony Wells, 47, faces two counts of neglect. Tribal police said he left his 4-month-old and 18-month-old in their car seats with the windows slightly cracked.

"I'm hoping that the guilt and the shame that this has brought on you, which I believe it has, I believe you realize what a serious mistake in judgment this is," a judge told Wells, WSVN reported.

The incident occurred at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood.
