Man turns drug deal into family outing, Tampa police say

TAMPA – A man was arrested after police say he took his wife and two daughters along on a drug deal Monday.

William C. Brown, 29, was charged with delivering cocaine, possession of cocaine and two counts of child neglect. Police said that while Brown was delivering crack cocaine to an agent of the Tampa police at 11:23 p.m., he took his wife and daughters.

Police said he used a phone to make the transaction, so he was charged with unlawful use of a two-way communication device. He was also charged with having no valid driver's license.

Brown remained in jail on a $26,750 bond.
