Police are accusing a man of leaving a child in car amid blazing heat while he went to eat lunch at a local burger joint.
When questioned by deputies, 20-year-old Dillon Roberts replied, “What’s the big deal? I cracked the window,” the Northwest Florida Daily News reported.
Reports say Roberts — who lives in Malone, located in northwest Florida — was inside the fast food restaurant for almost half an hour.
It was 90 degrees outside.

Authorities told Northwest Florida Daily News that the child was a young boy, that his face was red and that his clothes were soaked in sweat. Roberts was arrested and booked into a local jail.
