Mother arrested, charged after leaving her child alone at a St. Petersburg bar with a stranger


ST. PETERSBURG - A mother is facing a child abuse charge after, police say, she took her children with her to a local bar.

Arrest records show Rickquel L. Kehoe, 37, brought her six-year-old and seven-year-old to the bar on Sunday and got drunk. Then, according to the arresting officer, Kehoe left the older child with a man she'd just met at the bar--and went home with the six-year-old and a different man.

It was nearly 90 minutes later when Kehoe returned to the bar to retrieve the seven-year-old, records show. 

The child abuse charge relates to the older child. The arrest record says Kehoe "did commit an intentional act that could reasonably be expected to result in physical injury to the seven-year-old." 

The incident occurred at 10515 Gandy Blvd., which is the address listed for Kahuna's Bar and Grill.
