When a neighbor called police after hearing commotion inside a Palm Beach Shores condo, officials said they found 39-year-old Kimberly Kiernan hosting a party for 26 teenagers - some as young as 14 years old.

Palm Beach Shores Police said they found bags of liquor and beer in the condo, along with marijuana residue.

Even worse, they found a 7-year-old boy locked in a separate room. Police said when they found him, the child said, "Mommy locked me in the bathroom."

They also said they found a 16-year-old passed out and choking.

Officials said Kiernan was drunk, unable to stand and urinating on herself.

"When the officers discovered there was underage drinking involved, all kids, it just got weird," Palm Beach Shore Police Chief Steven Kniffin said.

Her ex-husband said things had been weird there for a while, saying she liked to party with young, teenage boys, according to police.

Neighbors have complained about her loud parties in the past.

"It's pretty surprising," neighbor Chad Ferranti said. "You hate to see that."

Kiernan responded to the complaints by leaving a handwritten note in the elevator that read, "We respectfully complied with previous requests."

Kiernan was charged with cruelty towards a child, resisting officer arrest, giving false information to officers and contributing to minor delinquency. She was released from the Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday.
