• Report: Tavares DCF worker was drunk, naked when she bashed boyfriend's van


    LAKE COUNTY, Fla. - A Lake County Department of Children and Families worker has found herself on the other side of the law, accused of attacking her boyfriend and bashing in the windows of his van while she was drunk and naked.

    Tavares police said Tamieka Lewis had been drinking when the bizarre fight happened outside the Disston Avenue home she shares with her boyfriend, who is also the father of her child.

    Lewis is now on paid leave but officials said they are working on firing her.

    Channel 9's Tim Barber went to the home on Wednesday, but no one answered the door. A few minutes later, Barber saw Lewis running to her car but she refused to answer his questions and sped off.

    Several neighbors told Channel 9 they were surprised to hear of the incident as they never had a problem with the couple.

    But if what the police are saying is true, neighbors said they don't think Lewis should be investigating cases for DCF.

    Eyewitness News found out Lewis had been working at the office for two years.
