Gambling away your 3-year-old daughter's college fund is sooo much more enjoyable when the sneaky little girl isn't around to watch it. Unfortunately, leaving said daughter in a crappy and easily escapable motel room while you skip off to the casino is illegal.

Police in Fife, Wash., say they arrested a mom and her boyfriend who were caught in such a catch-22 on Monday.

KOMO:

Fife police Lt. Tom Thompson said officers were called to the Sunshine Motel on Pacific Highway at about 2 a.m. after a hotel clerk found the girl wandering alone outside and crying.

The room rented by the girl's mother and boyfriend was empty, and the door was open, Thompson said.

The couple finally returned the motel at about 5:30 a.m. and told investigators they'd walked up the street to a casino and lost track of time, according to Thompson.

The mother was arrested for investigation of child abandonment, and her boyfriend was arrested for investigation of multiple drug offenses.

At the nearby Emerald Queen Casino no one under 21 is allowed in, even with parental supervision.

So obviously the parents had to leave the kid in the motel. it's not like they could have simply not gone to the casino. That's just boring.

And who can afford a babysitter? Someone who just won a slot-machine jackpot. That's who!
