On Friday, August 4, 2017, a woman from the Port St. Lucie area of Florida was arrested at a hotel room in Boynton Beach. The hotel room was a mess and contained a variety of drugs and drug paraphernalia. In addition, a little girl of only five years of age was found in the room with a cigarette burn mark on her right arm, according to the arrest report made by the police.
The little girl gave Boynton Beach police the name of the woman and said that she was burned. The woman is from Port St. Lucie and allegedly burned the girl’s arm after the child got into her way. It is unknown what the relationship between the woman and the child is and the arrest report does not mention details of the relationship or if there even is one.

She was arrested and held at the Palm Beach County Jail in Florida and was subsequently released on Sunday, August 6, 2017, after she posted her bond, which amounted to $10,000.
