UPDATE 11:08 am

A woman accused of abandoning a child will remain in jail despite getting a relatively low bond for a misdemeanor charge.  Myeisha Walker appeared before a judge today.  This is days after an incident near the Waffle House on Government Street.  Early Friday morning someone found an 8-month-old child alone, unattended.  The child was taken to the Waffle House while police were called.  

Walker was subsequently arrested.  An ADA reading the charge said Walker was found “naked dancing in the middle of Dauphin Island Parkway likely under the influence of an unknown substance.”  She was assigned a lawyer and given a $1,000 bond.  Walker said in court she couldn’t make that bond amount.  She will likely remain in jail.  The case is set to go to trial on March 7th.  Walker was also ordered to have no contact with the child.
