June 3, 2010

An Indianapolis father is accused of leaving his 9-year-old son alone in a motel room for six hours so he could get drunk with other motel guests. Officers found 39-year-old Steven Lavoy drinking in the parking lot of the Dollar Inn on the city's southwest side. A woman staying at the motel called police when the boy knocked on her door, saying he couldn’t find his father and was scared.
