Woman arrested for allowing underage drinking

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.

  1. Don't we have other problems

    Doesn’t this country have other problems? We let people die for the country at 20 in senseless wars on the other side of the world and prohibit them enjoying a glass of wine at home.

    Obviously there is too much money sent to the sheriff if they have enough men-power for such non-sense…

    I believe her. Sounds like someone was trying to get her in trouble, or annoyed due to noise, or something, and phoned her in.
