Dad Dead, Mom Behind Bars Following "One Last Drug Binge" At FL Hotel

Police say a Florida mother is facing a child neglect charge after inviting the father of her 4-year-old daughter to join her for "one last drug binge" before she entered a rehab program.

Gainesville police spokesman Ben Tobias says 23-year-old Taylor Cheyenne Perry was already high on methamphetamine when the pair arrived with the child at the Sleep Inn in Gainsville on Sunday.

Perry and the father, 29-year-old Joseph Beavins, allegedly brought a stash of drugs including meth, fentanyl and cocaine to the inn.

When Perry and the child went to sleep, Beavins continued using drugs, authorities say.

According to police, the child found Beavins unresponsive early Monday morning. Perry and the girl left the inn shortly after, but called for an ambulance for Beavins. 

Beavins overdosed and died sometime Sunday night.

Perry was booked into jail Monday. It's not known whether she has a lawyer. 

The Department of Children and Families took the child.
