FLORIDA -- A 4th grader’s caretaker is in big trouble with the law after the 10-year-old child in her care was found drunk and naked wandering around a neighborhood in Florida!

"He couldn't even stand. He was just, ahhh, you know. Naked…….He was so intoxicated that he didn't realize he had no clothes on," Amanda Roesch, neighbor who found the boy, said.

Roesch said she found the child while out walking her dog. She coaxed him inside her home to give him some of her son's clothing and then called police.
 
When officers arrived at the child's home, they said they found the child’s caretaker passed out at a friend's home across the street and a half bottle of brandy.  Police said the boy told police his caretaker gave him the alcohol. 

The child's caretaker, Nedra Byrd, was arrested.
