Hoschton couple arrested on Daytona Beach for alleged child neglect

By AccessWDUN Staff

A Hoschton couple was recently arrested on Daytona Beach in Florida after they were allegedly found heavily intoxicated and without their children.

A report from Fox 35 Orlando said Alyssia Langley, 27, and her fiance Timothy Stephens, 27, were both arrested and charged with child neglect on Saturday.

The news outlet reportedly obtained an arrest affidavit and body camera footage from the Volusia County Sheriff's Office related to the event.

A caller reported the couple to 911, and it took a deputy eight attempts to wake up the couple, who were intoxicated and asleep on the beach.

Body camera footage showed deputies asking the couple where their kids were, but the couple didn't seem to know. Stephens also calls out for the children at the beach at one point in the footage.

Deputies later found the two kids, 5 and 7 years old, swimming in a pool at a nearby hotel. They were not supervised but were safe.

The news report said Stephens was taken to an area hospital for treatment before he was booked at the jail. This was allegedly due to an injury he sustained while attempting to escape from deputies.
