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.
