Drunk Mom Leaves Child Alone In Keys Bar, Spits Vomit At Officers

Authorities say an intoxicated woman left her 7-year-old daughter alone inside of a Florida Keys bar and then spit vomit at deputies who attempted to question her.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to a report of a child being separated from her mother at the Marriott Courtyard in Marathon over the weekend. Hotel security called police after finding the girl alone at the bar.

Cape Coral resident Kimberly Day, 28 was found holding her daughter outside the hotel with her boyfriend. Day appeared to be severely intoxicated, according to the arrest report.

Day's boyfriend claimed the two had been fighting all day and that he had left her and her daughter and was about to head back to Fort Myers.

Deputies asked Day to let go of her daughter when they noticed the child was having difficulty breathing after Day tightened her grip on the girl. The report said the girl appeared to be gasping for air.

When Day released her daughter, she began to kick one of the deputies. Officials then took her down to the ground. At that point, the arrest report says Day forced herself to vomit and spit it back at the deputies.

The report said Day attempted to defecate and said she would throw her feces at the deputies.

As Day continued to spit, a spit mask was placed over her head and she was taken to Fisherman's Hospital.

Day was sedated after she continued to kick, spit and make verbal threats to hospital personnel.

Day was arrested on charges of child neglect, resisting an officer with violence and battery on an officer or firefighter.
