Mallory Mims - Jailed After Leaving Child Locked Inside Car While Applying And Drinking At Local Bar

Ormond Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Mallory Renee Mims, a 22-year-old Ormond Beach woman was jailed Friday after she allegedly left her 5-year-old child unattended in a car for over an hour while she applied for a job at a bar, then stuck around to drink a few shots.

According to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Mims went to the Pirana Bar and Grill to fill out a job application.

Investigators say Mims left her child in a locked car with the windows rolled up while she went inside. After applying for the job, she hung out at the bar for over an hour, consuming three shots of vodka.

When a bar patron asked Mims about the child, Mims denied that the child was hers. When Mims tried to leave the bar, the bartender took away her keys. Police were called when Mims went behind the bar to retrieve her keys.

When officers arrived on the scene, Mims smelled of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated, according to the arrest affidavit.

She was booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail and charged with child neglect and leaving a child unattended in a vehicle for more than 15 minutes. She was released after posting $1,500 bail.

The child was placed in the care of a relative.
