A Florida babysitter was charged with child neglect after taking a baby in his stroller for a ride the bed of a pickup.According to 911 calls, several people contacted Daytona Beach police Wednesday when they saw the stroller in the back of the truck."It's not something you see every day," Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood told CNN affiliate WESH. "I hope they revoke her babysitting license for that. Would you want her watching your kid?"The babysitter, Keyona Davis, 23, said in a court appearance Thursday that she had a firm grip on the stroller and that she did not realize her actions constituted neglect.Davis' public defender had argued that the charge of child neglect was too harsh, as the baby was unharmed."It's only if the pickup crashes, the child will be injured or hurt," a public defender said in court.Davis replied, "Exactly!"Davis said she didn't realize that police would consider what she did as "negligent.""It's not like they give you a handbook or anything," she said.Davis was released from jail on her own recognizance. Police are still investigating the driver of the truck and the baby's mother.
