May 16th, 2011 by Staff

OCOEE, Fla. – A mother of three children was arrested for child neglect after police say she got drunk at an Ocoee bar and passed out with her four-year-old in her lap.

Police say 37-year-old Kira Logsdon-Mitchell went to Frank’s Place around 10:30 Thursday night and sat with a group of men, drinking beer for more than 20 minutes. A bartender said that’s when the mother went outside and brought in her four-year-old son who she had left alone in the car.

The bartender at Frank’s Place on North Clarke Road was so concerned she called 911.

When police arrived they said Logsdon-Mitchell was passed out with the child in her arms. Police escorted her outside and gave her a breathalyzer test. She blew a .215 which is almost three times the legal limit.

Police called the woman’s mother who told them Logsdon-Mitchell had two other kids who were home alone. They were just seven and nine-years-old.

Ocoee police arrested Logsdon-Mitchell for three counts of child neglect. The Department of Children and Families placed the kids with their grandmother.

Logsdon-Mitchell has posted bond.
