LAKE WORTH, FL – Police have arrested a 26-year-old stripper at the Cheetah Club after they found her two hungry children living in a filthy home with no power and covered in insect bites.
Police responded to the home of Tammy Pierce after they received a call from an unidentified female at the home crying because “she hasn’t eaten in three days.” When police arrived at the home, they found Pierce lying on the floor complaining of stomach pains from drinking too much at the club the night before.
Her two children were walking around the “dirty” home, trying not to step on the cigarette butts that were strewn about the home. They were covered in insect bites and told police they were hungry and had not eaten. The officers noted in their report that the home had no power and that the food in the refrigerator had spoiled.
Firefighters ended up going to a nearby store to get the kids some food, and their Godmother eventually picked them up and took them to her home. The Department of Children and Families has been notified of the incident.
Pierce was arrested charged with child neglect. She was has since been released from jail on $6,000 bail. Some people commenting on this story claiming to know this woman say her child neglect has been an ongoing issue.
I’ve known several strippers over the years and they were good parent to their children, doing what they needed to do to compensate for deadbeat fathers. So I refuse to broad stroke an entire profession because of stories like this. But holy shit, if Pierce is any indication of the dancers they employ, I will never be visiting the Cheetah Club. Seriously, I’m pretty sure I could get a job there.Tags: Cheetah Club, Child Neglect, Crime, Florida, stripper, Tammy Pierce
