Ashton Krauss of Ocean Ridge, Florida has been charged with child neglect and disorderly conduct after abandoning her toddler baby in a high chair to go dancing and socializing at Banana Boat Lounge and Restaurant.
The woman’s arrest would come after surrounding customers complained about the child crying leading to an intoxicated Krauss twirling the child and falling over to the ground after crashing into a bar stool.
Cops would arrive after the mother became angry with patrons and staff trying to assist her according to a report via the Sun-Sentinel.
Dispatched police would tell that the local hairdresser was ‘violent and belligerent.’
Further investigations would lead to the discovery of an open beer in the console of her vehicle and another alcoholic beverage unopened in her purse.
The opened beverage was a 16 oz. can of Michelob Ultra and the unopened one was a 16 oz.-can of Angry Orchard cider beer.
Krauss would be booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on charges of child neglect and disorderly conduct, and is being held in lieu of $3,000 bail.
Her uncle currently has custody of the child.
