Drunk Mother Leaves Children in Car at Strip Club
A drunk mother left her two young children alone in an unlocked car while she went to ogle female strippers.
Brandi Jo Roman, 28, abandoned the three-year-old girl and crying five-year-old boy while she headed into a club in Tampa, Florida.
Officers from the Tampa Police Department found her inebriated and sitting beside the stage of the Mons Venus strip club with cash in her hand.
The children were sat in the Ford F-150 pick-up truck, which reeked of alcohol, with a can of a malt liquor called Four Loko in easy reach, according the New York Daily News.
Roman, whose speech was slurred, now faces two charges of child neglect and her offspring have been taken into care by the Florida Department of Children and Families.
‘When the officers asked her to stand up she was unstable,’ said police spokesperson Janelle McGregor. ‘They could smell the alcohol emitting from her mouth.’
