MUSTANG, Okla. - An Oklahoma man is facing three counts of child neglect after police said he left his kids alone in a car outside a metro bar.

The three children, all under the age of 4, were outside Big Dick's Roadhouse while the father claims he was inside doing some paperwork.

The man is employed by the bar but police said when they went inside, he was at a video poker machine.
