Jordan told police he was inside the strip club for a matter of minutes, but Scarlett’s General Manager Christopher Mays told WBBH-TV he was inside for at least 30 minutes.

“He was in there for about 30 to 40 minutes,” Mays said.

A customer heard the infant crying and helped the older child unlock the SUV with the help of staff.

Police say the baby was found upside down.

“Three-month-old boy who (was) not strapped in the car seat (was) upside-down. (His) head is where it’s butt should be. Feet up in the air,” Mays said.

The TV station also reported that the two children were Jordan’s.

The Department of Children and Families is investigating.

It’s unclear if Jordan has a lawyer.
