OCALA, Fla. (Dawn Faugl) -- A father is in jail, and facing child neglect charges, but it was a customer at a bar that first let him know what they thought about his actions.

Joshua Delong is accused of leaving his three kids - ages 5, 7, and 8 - inside his car alone, while he drank inside the bar.

A woman who was at the bar, says she walked outside and found the kids inside the car, honking the horn and yelling for their dad. "They had been here for a long time and they told me daddy does it a lot," Heather Weiss said.

The children reportedly had been in the car for four hours, with the windows rolled up and the keys still in the ignition.

She says he tried to drive off with the kids, while drunk, but three bouncers stopped him. Then she says, another person at the bar, who was upset with that happened, hit Delong and knocked him to the ground.Dad Accused of Leaving Kids in Car Outside a Bar Beaten by Customer
