David Shawfield is demanding that he be left in jail after he was originally brought in for leaving his children in a boiling hot car. The father, from Miami, Florida, had apparently yelled to a friend that came to get his three children, “Don’t bond me out! I never want to get out.”
The 49-year-old allegedly earlier told an arresting officer: ‘That was only like the second time I had done this. Oh, well. I could use a vacation’ after being told he was going to jail.
When a deputy was dispatched to come and pick up the kids, the arresting officer wrote: ‘The driver became irate and walked over…and began to yell at the children, “See? I’m going to jail because you wanted something to drink. I’m never going to get out. I hope you’re happy”.’
The arresting officer reported: ‘The suspect’s eyes were bloodshot and his pupils were fixed. His face was flushed and he was unstable on his feet. The suspect [told me he] was on sleeping pills and psych meds.’
