  • “She showed up at the Tickets Sports Bar and stayed about 20 minutes,” Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons said. “She tried to leave. The employees and some patrons at the TicketsSports Bar were so concerned about her that they stopped her from leaving and called law enforcement.”

    Police took the 27-year-old woman to a hospital where a relative told officers she was supposed to be with her toddler.

    “The 1-year-old child, inside a vehicle with the windows up, in the heat that we’ve been experiencing over the last couple of days,” Simmons said. “Clearly, she had no concern for her 1-year-old.”
