Published:

BROOKSVILLE - Brooksville Police arrested a 24-year-old woman on Thursday on charges of child neglect.

Responding to calls that Misty White was "heavily intoxicated" and "attempting to put a small child in the car seat of a vehicle," officers found White looking for her child.

Officers then found the child in the car seat, as well as another child in White's 1509 Greenbriar Villa Circle home.

The Florida Department of Children and Families took custody of White's children. White was booked at the jail on two counts of child neglect.

White is being held on $20,000 bond. If released, she would not be able to have contact with her children, and submit to a weekly drug and alcohol testing.
