Miami Mom Arrested for Leaving Son Alone While She Danced at Strip Club

Categories: WTF Florida

A common problem for working mothers in Florida is that strip clubs tend not to offer onsite child care for the dancers' kids. Of course, working mothers should never leave their children alone at a hotel while they're at their job, no matter what their occupation.

Brittany Renee Roman, 21, was arrested last week for doing just that.

On Wednesday, a security guard noticed a 6-year-old boy walking alone outside the Westgate Towers hotel in Kissimmee. He noticed the boy alone again several hours later and asked him if he was staying at the hotel. The boy said yes and that he was staying there with his mother.

Police were called but couldn't locate Roman, the boy's mother. Her driver's license listed her residence as Miami, and no one answered her home number.

Several hours later, Roman returned and explained she had been "working and dancing" at the Diamond Club, a strip club in nearby Orlando.

Local police then arrested Roman and charged her with child neglect.

Try affording and trusting a babysitter.

I get tired of these stories too. Especially your headlines that make it seem like all Florida/Miami moms are irresponsible. Why don't you spend your time writing another Trader Joe's article? I appreciated that one.
