9/28/15: Woman Arrested for DUI May Face More Charges
In Boca Raton, Florida, a woman was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence which lead to an investigation into child neglect. Boca Raton resident Colleen Nichols was arrested for DUI and during her arrest she reportedly told Coral Springs authorities that she’d left her toddler at home alone. When a deputy from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office was sent to her home a neighbor let them in.
According to the report, they found Colleen Nichols’ 3-year-old daughter asleep in her bedroom. Authorities also found a small dog in the suburban home. Mr. Nichols, Colleen’s husband arrived while officers were still in the residence. According to the arrest report, he seemed surprised and confused when told about his wife. Police reported that the child would probably have been able to leave the home since there were no rails or bars on the girl’s bed. She was released from Palm Beach County Jail after paying the $3,000 bail.
