Parents Jailed After Leaving 2 Kids at Home to Party in Las Vegas

Father went on Facebook and said the weekend was about to be "Hangover 3"
They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Apparently, the same goes for Chicago if you have kids.
Shanpreta Howard and Antowain Johnson have both been charged with child endangerment after they left their 12-year old son and 9-year old daughter home alone in Chicago so they could enjoy two days of partying in Las Vegas. Yes, you read that right, they left their kids to fend for themselves for two days while they partied in Vegas.
The couple left Chi-town on the evening of Wednesday, February 22 and didn't return until that Friday afternoon. Yes, those are school nights ladies and gentlemen. Howard and Johsnon's escapade was under wraps until their son told a teacher that he and her sister were home alone while their parents were in Sin City with a group of friends.
Well, actually, the trip wasn't much of a secret anyway as the couple updated their Facebook pages the entire time. Judging from the pictures, they appear to have hit just about every sight there was to see. At one point, Johnson even posted "about to hit the strip club." Before that he predicted that the visit would be like "Hangover 3." Sorry brah, wrong movie. This sounds more like Home Alone.
The couple turned themselves in on Tuesday.
