The woman was filmed by stunned motorists clinging onto the eight-month-old baby in a stroller, while the truck cruised around the streets of Daytona Beach, Florida.
Babysitter Keyona Davis, 34, was arrested on Wednesday August 17, after concerned road-users called 911. She was charged with neglect — but allowed to walk free from court the following day. Did she get off too lightly?
“It’s not something you see every day,” Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood tells CNN. “I hope they revoke her babysitting license for that. Would you want her watching your kid?”
In court, her lawyer even claimed the neglect charge was too harsh, saying, “It’s only if the pickup crashes, the child will be injured or hurt.”
She was set free by the court on Thursday, on her own recognizance. Police plan to investigate the driver of the car and the child’s mother.
Should she have been given jail time? Or a harsher punishment? Weigh in HollyMoms?
