Man Arrested After Leaving 4-Year Old At Home Alone To Go Play Ninja By Himself

March 14, 2011


Picture moderately related.

Ross Hurst, 28, of Scottsdale, Pennsylvania was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after leaving his 4-year old son at home alone sleeping while he went out to play ninja by himself at 1:30 in the morning. Dammit Ross, you know you shouldn't be out ninja-ing after midnight!

...police found him dressed all in black and "playing ninja" on a borough street.

Police say Hurst, 28, told them his mother was watching the child, but the boy's grandmother said Hurst never asked her to babysit.

In an affidavit, Patrolman Joseph Lane said that he asked Hurst "why he was playing by himself" at around 1.30 a.m. on March 3.

"He replied that there are not a lot of people who want to play ninja," the newspaper quoted Lane's affidavit as saying. "I advised him that it looked to me that he was doing something else. Hurst stated that he was not doing anything wrong and was going home.

"Not a lot of people who want to play ninja"? You are living in the wrong damn place! I happen to know for a fact my apartment is FILLED with people who want to play ninja. Namely, me. Dragon-kick to the balls aside, where was the mother in all of this? "UH, GW? HE MAKE-BELIEVE NINJAS BY HIMSELF AT 1:30 IN THE MORNING." Aaaaaah, gotcha -- so more of a playa type.

Thanks to Greg, who can play ninja whenever he damn well pleases because, I dunno, SOMETHING ABOUT NOT BEING SEEN.
