Father arrested for child neglect

- Investigators with the Department of Children and Families say 29 year old Brian Hall was arrested yesterday in Daytona Beach after his five year old stepson was found severely neglected.

Police say the boy is Hall's wife's child but the couple have two other children together. They say Hall or his wife had made no effort to get the child any education and the boy was found unable to speak or walk properly and was still in diapers.

When investigators confronted Hall at this home they say he was angry and claimed the child was not his problem.

"He is not my responsibility. I'm not his father. I come from a rich and white family."

Investigators say the boy was malnourished and was taken to the hospital and placed in the ICU.

Hall was arrested on felony child neglect charges.
