Mom accused of leaving kids in car while inside bar

Posted: Updated:

A DeBary woman faced a judge on Monday on child neglect charges.

Volusia County deputies said Cheryn Scaggs, 30, went to Shotz sports bar in DeBary around midnight Sunday and drank until 2 in the morning Monday. Bar patrons told deputies that Scaggs asked for help getting home, and that's when patrons noticed Scagg's children, ages 1 and 4, asleep in the car in the bar parking lot. 

Deputies arrested Scaggs and she was jailed on a $10,000 bond.

Shotz bar owners tell FOX 35 News, "We feel fortunate that this situation was discovered before this woman was able to leave, which led to her subsequent arrest.  We pray that these children will be placed in safe care."
