A 48-year-old Palmetto woman was arrested July 15 in Holmes Beach for allegedly allowing a group of underage adults and juveniles to consume alcohol in her presence.
Lisa Frizzell faces a misdemeanor charge for an alleged open house party.
According to the probable cause affidavit, Frizzell was renting a unit in the 200 block of 48th Street. Police found Frizzell in the back of the residence at a tiki bar consuming alcohol with six adults ages 18-20 and two juveniles.
Police say Frizzell initially refused to cooperate, but later said, “I was trying to be a good mother and keep them all in one place … It is better than them driving.”
Frizzell was booked into the Manatee County jail on $120 bond, which she posted the same day. She is scheduled for arraignment Aug. 16 at 8:30 a.m.
