A trip to the swimming pool lands a woman visiting Lexington in some hot water.

Police say 24-year old Tiffany Robertson from New Albany, Indiana left her two-year-old all alone in a room of the LaQuinta Inn and Suites while she and her boyfriend went to another hotel's pool.

Around 4am, a hotel guest heard the toddler crying in the hall and when he looked out his door he saw the child trying to get out the 3rd floor exit. Lexington police later discovered the mother at the pool and she admitted being gone for about two hours.

Tuesday, Robertson was scheduled to be in court to answer to a endangering the welfare of a minor charge, but was a no-show. The judge issued a warrant for her arrest.
