Woman jailed for leaving daughter in car
Police: Woman went into bar for drinks
Police say an applicant for a job at a sports bar ended up in jail after she decided to stay for drinks while leaving her 5-year-old daughter unattended for an hour inside her car.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the woman had three tequila shots at the Pirana Bar and Grille in Ormond Beach after filling out a job application last Friday.
According to a police report, a customer came in the bar and announced that a small child was alone in a car parked outside. Police say the woman denied the child was hers.
Police say the bartender eventually took away the woman's keys until police arrived and arrested her on child neglect charges. The woman's mother took custody of the child, who was not injured.
