Topless Babysitter Found Passed Out in Parking Lot

A 47-year old woman was found lying topless in a hotel parking lot where she was supposed to be babysitting a boy whose mother had gone gambling. That is the saddest sentence you'll ever read in your entire life.


Police were called in to the River Palm Hotel, located at 420 S. Harbor City Blvd. in Melbourne, to investigate a report about a child wandering the premises of the hotel alone. 

After searching the hotel for a parent or guardian, the cops eventually found  Stacey Kerres of Fort Pierce, who is identified with a dagger and rose ankle tattoo (keepin' it classy), lying in the middle of the hotel parking lot, with no top on. She was charged with child neglect.

According to police, Kerres was lethargic and incoherent and slurred her words when they questioned her. She reportedly told them she didn't know where the boy was. No word on why Kerres was lying on the ground or why she was topless.

Melbourne police booked the topless babysitter into the Brevard County Jail Complex. They were unable to locate the boy's mother and turned the case over to the Department of Children and Families.

The boy was watched over by hotel employees and was reportedly fine.

Kerres will have a hearing on her charges on September 18. A judge ordered her to stay away from the boy, pending the outcome of the case.

This story turned out to be a lot less sexy than the headline suggests, no?
