St. Petersburg, Florida - Police used a stun gun on a Mugs 'N Jugs waitress outside a tanning salon on Thursday.

Officers say 19-year-old Ashley Agerenza left her 7-month-old daughter in the car when she went into Extreme Tan and Smoothies located at 5921 4th Street N. in St. Petersburg. At first she allegedly tried to take the child into the tanning salon with her, and was told she couldn't leave the baby unattended while she tanned.

Police say the car was unlocked and running. They also say the child had nearly fallen out of the seat and had spit up on herself. Once an officer confronted Agerenza, they say she hit him twice and tried to walk away. That's when the officer used his stun gun on her.

It took two hits to send Agerenza to the ground before she was taken into custody.

The baby was not harmed, and was placed in the custody of another family member.

This isn't Agerenza's first run-in with law enforcement. In January of 2010 she was charged with felony burglary of an occupied structure. Then on January 13, 2011 Agerenza was arrested for DUI.

On one of Agerenza's Facebook profiles, she talks about her new baby daughter frequently and in her last status update she posted, "Wit my lil mama then i might go out for the fisrt time yay!dk if i can leave her tho.. So maybe just a drink wen she my baby!"
