One Massachusetts man probably wishes he hadn't gone shopping. Anthony Perry, 34, left his girlfriend's 2-year-old son alone in a car while he went shopping for Black Friday bargains.

Police officers smashed the window of his car to get the boy out after they were alerted by security.

Officers then found the boyfriend at home with his brand new 51-inch flat-screen television.

Perry told police he lost the boy while shopping, panicked and called someone else for a ride. The boy's mother was working.

Police expect to charge Perry with reckless endangerment of a child.
