BLUFFTON, SC (AP) - Beaufort County sheriff's deputies say a neighbor of a Bluffton man found his 1-year-old son alone in a second-floor apartment, putting pills in his mouth on the balcony.
Investigators think the boy had been alone about six hours overnight on March 1. He was not hurt. 26-year-old Henry James Hall has been charged with unlawful neglect and theft of cable.
Deputies think Hall had a fight with the boy's mother. Authorities say when Hall wouldn't let her take her son, she left him in the apartment and went to a friend's home. A sheriff's report states Hall then went to another girlfriend's house and spent the night there, leaving his son alone.
