COLUMBIA COUNTY, Fla. -- Saturday June 8, Columbia County Sheriff's Officer Calvin Lee responded to a disturbance reference, according to a Columbia County Sheriff's news release.

A witness reported that Allison Johnson, 29, was allegedly intoxicated and left her one-year-old daughter unattended.

Officer Lee arrived to the residence and spoke with the witness that found Johnson allegedly passed out with a bottle of vodka on the floor beside the bed.

The witness said she tried to speak with Johnson, but when the conversation started to become aggressive the witness stepped outside and contacted CCSO.

Office Lee tried to converse with Johnson, who was locked in her bedroom with her child. The witness was able to unlock the door for Officer Lee, the report detailed.

Johnson would not respond to the initial questions that Officer Lee asked. The report detailed that she began to communicate after a short period of time.

Officer Lee asked if she drank a large amount of alcohol, she allegedly responded yes with a head nod. He then began to ask a series of questions to see how coherent she was. The report said Officer Lee asked her what year it was, and she allegedly responded 2007.

Johnson was transported to Lake Shore Hospital because of her intoxication. At the hospital, she allegedly became confrontational with the medical staff and used vulgar language.

The report said Johnson was transported to Columbia County Detention Facility without incident once she was discharged.

Officer Lee noted that there was an open vodka bottle beside Johnson's bed, a mixture of clean and dirty clothes on the floor, which made it difficult to move around the room.

Johnson was arrested on one count of second-degree disorderly intoxication and third-degree child neglect.

Officer Lee contacted the Department of Children and Family services due to the condition of the residence and the child left unattended. A representative from DCF, reported that an investigator would survey the home as soon as possible.
