Police babysit while witness heads to court
Two Cincinnati police officers were called into action for an unusual duty yesterday - babysitting.
Authorities say officers served a subpoena on Lucretia Williams when she failed to testify in a murder trial. When the officers arrived yesterday, they realized Williams didn't show because she runs a home day care. No problem. Authorities took the 47-year-old Williams to the courthouse while Officers Doug Neack and John Heine showed up to babysit the four girls and one boy under the age of three.
Two day-care specialists from the Hamilton County Department of Job and Family Services stepped in after an hour.
Neack says the kids gathered around them, pointing and asking questions. Authorities say Williams was never jailed and returned home after she testified.
