A Sebring man who was accused of leaving his children home alone under a car tarp overnight before being arrested for drunk driving has been sentenced to jail.

A judge in Sebring Court sentenced 30-year-old Randal Crowe to ten days in jail Thursday after finding him guilty on charges of disorderly conduct and operating a vehicle under the influence.

The disorderly conduct charges were reduced from the more serious child endangering charges filed after Sebring police say he ran a stop sign on West Ohio Avenue in April. 

The arresting officer said Crowe could not show a driver's license, registration, or proof of insurance. 

Crowe told police that he had been arrested earlier in the night by Alliance Police and they took his money, driver's license, and marijuana.

After failing a field sobriety test, Police say Crowe told them that his two children were inside his house lying "under a car tarp".

Officers say the home's door was unlocked and inside they found the two children on an air mattress lying under a car tarp. 

According to the police report, Crowe told the children he was "turning himself in" and if he wasn't back in the morning they should walk to their grandmother's house.

The children told police they had been alone for about four hours.
