God Forbid That Them Queers in Florida Could Adopt a Child...but this Woman is A-OK!!! ;)

Police: Woman Left Child In Car While Drinking In Bar


DAVIE, Fla. - A woman has been charged with child neglect after being accused of leaving her son in a car while she drank in a Davie pub. Early Tuesday morning, a bouncer at Ye Olde Falcon Pub in Davie said he noticed Kathryn Stough behaving oddly. He said Stough would go inside to have a drink and then go outside to the parking lot about every 15 minutes.

The bouncer followed Stough to her truck and, when she returned inside, found her 7-year-old son inside with all the windows up, except for a rear window that was cracked about three inches, police said. The bouncer said the truck's hood was up and the engine was off.

The bouncer said he then called police and told the bartender to stop serving Stough.

"She said that she had just stopped at the bar to use the restroom and that the child was asleep. She didn't want to wake him. That story was quickly disputed by the doorman, who said she had been inside for well over an hour. When they went inside to talk to the bartender, she had rang up a bar tab of about $14," Lt. Bill Bramford, of the Davie police, said.

The child did not require medical treatment. Police said he is in the care of his half-brother's father until his own biological father arrives from Chicago to take care of him.

Stough, who lives in Plantation, cannot post bond and remains in jail on charges of child neglect.
