Friday Fail: Tattoos, Guns, & Pools

Tools

By WSIL Reporter

ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Our Friday Fail takes us to New Mexico, where John Ruiz has been charged with endangering a child's life or health.  He went to get a tattoo on his head, and decided to leave his 11-year-old daughter at an apartment complex pool.

     
To make sure she'd be safe, he left her with a loaded 22-caliber gun. A neighbor spotted the gun in the girl's towel and called police.
 
Ruiz told police he's done this before, and he keeps the gun where she can use it in case of an emergency.   He posted bond and has been released.  His 11-year-old daughter is still in his custody.

In case you were wondering, the head tattoo he went to get said "In God I Trust."
