A 32-year-old man is facing felony charges after authorities say he left a baby at his probation office after he took a drug test.
Dominic Michael Retino, 32, whose address was not released, was arrested Thursday by Collier County sheriff's deputies on charges of child neglect and probation violation.
Retino entered the state probation office on Airport-Pulling Road around 4 p.m. with a baby girl, according to an arrest report. He was escorted to the restroom to submit to a drug test while staff members cared for the baby in the lobby.
But after submitting his specimen, reports say Retino never returned to the lobby to get the baby.
Deputies located Retino about a half hour later on Airport-Pulling Road, north of the office. When asked if he forgot something at the probation office, Retino said "no," reports said. When asked if he had left a baby, Retino said "I thought I left the baby in the car."
Retino's speech was slurred while he met with deputies, and at one point he fell asleeep and started snoring, reports said. He couldn't explain why he had left the baby at the office, other than to say he hadn't slept since the previous morning.
The baby had severe diaper rash, a pale lower lip and a dry mouth, reports said. Staff members said the two feeding bottles in the baby's diaper bag smelled sour.
