A Miami woman was arrested in Kissimmee after leaving her 6-year-old child alone in a hotel while she was at a strip club, according to the Osceola County Sheriff's Office.
Brittany Renee Roman, 21, was confronted by deputies after they found her son walking around a hotel alone.
A hotel security guard told deputies the child had been unsupervised for several hours, the sheriff’s office said. The boy told the security guard he was staying with his mother, but when the boy took the security guard to the room he was staying at, no one was there, according to authorities.
Deputies contacted the Department of Children and Families, but Roman’s address was listed in Miami. Deputies tried contacting her by phone and got no answer.
Several hours later Roman returned to the hotel, where deputies were waiting for her.
Roman told authorities she had been “dancing/working at Diamond Club in Orlando," the sheriff’s office said.
She was taken to Osceola County Jail and charged with child neglect. It wasn’t immediately known if she had an attorney.
