David Godbey arrested for leaving children home alone
Grand Island police have arrested a man they say left his two young children home alone for several hours. Police say the 37-year-old David Godbey was arrested Tuesday night for driving under license suspension and without insurance.
Officer Roger Philbeck says about four hours later, officers found the man's two boys, ages 3 and 4, alone at the house during a welfare check. Philbeck says the children were found locked in their bedroom, where they had been since about 5 p.m. Tuesday. Authorities say the man, who now faces child abuse charges, did not tell police his children were alone at the house.
