Florida Man filmed attempting to pawn baby.

A Florida man might not want to take Snapchat video suggestions from his nephew anymore.

According to Sarasota police, Brian Slocum walked into a pawnshop on Tuesday evening. He had his infant son in a carrier when he approached the clerk.

The 43-year-old single dad then put the carrier on the counter, spun it around, and asked what he could get for the baby.

“This is what I got. I know [there’s] no one under 18 in here, but he’s barely used, 7-1/2 months old, what do you think he’s worth?” Slocum is heard on a video that was posted on his Snapchat.

He didn’t get an offer. The Sarasota Police Department got a phone call instead from the clerk.

“The pawn shop clerk did take the comments made by Mr. Slocum very serious and we appreciate him immediately notifying [us],” the department said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

The police “utilized vast resources from several divisions to locate the child and identify Slocum,” detectives said.

3. Your headline doesn't reflect what the story says.

This is the actual headline:

A Florida man walks into a pawnshop with his baby. Apparently, this joke isn’t funny.

It seems, from the story, that the police have concluded that the man didn't actually attempt to pawn the baby.
