HOLMES BEACH — A Holmes Beach man was charged with two counts of child neglect after leaving his two children asleep at home and going to drink, according to the Holmes Beach Police Department.
Adam Brewer, 28, was arrested at 4:10 a.m. Thursday at his home, according to a report.
An officer reported Brewer drove aimlessly from the 200 block of 41st Street to Gulf Drive before pulling into a shopping center at the 5200 block of Gulf Drive. An officer who stopped Brewer reported he had glassy eyes and smelled of alcohol.
Brewer told the officer he was at Dcoy Ducks, 5410 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, and needed to get home because his two children, ages 2 and 3, were alone.
