MELBOURNE, Fla., Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said they arrested a babysitter who was found lying topless in a hotel parking lot when she was supposed to be watching a 5-year-old.

Melbourne police said officers responded to a report of a child left alone for nearly an hour Thursday at the River Palm Hotel. After speaking to the child, who was playing video games with hotel staff, they searched the property and found babysitter Stacey Kerres, 47, lying topless in the parking lot near the room where the boy was staying with his mother, Florida Today reported Tuesday.

The boy told police his mother had gone to the casino and Kerres has frequently been called upon to watch him.

Police said Kerres had trouble speaking and was unable to tell them where the child was.

Kerres was charged with child neglect and is due in court Sept. 18.

The case has been referred to the Department of Children and Families.
