Pasco man accused of fondling 11-year-old as she slept

NEW PORT RICHEY — A 36-year-old man was arrested Sunday after authorities say he fondled an 11-year-old girl as she slept.

The girl was dozing on the sofa about 11:30 a.m. when she felt Kevin Brian Keith put his hand down her pants, according to a report from New Port Richey Police. She ran into her bedroom and locked herself inside, grabbing a lamp to protect herself as she heard Keith trying to open the door, the report said.

The victim's mother came home a few minutes later to find her daughter crying in her room, and Keith sleeping on the living room floor.

Keith told police he and the girl had been wrestling, but he did not touch her inappropriately. He also said he drank about 12 beers that morning.

Keith, who is homeless, was arrested on a charge of sexual battery on a child under 12. He remained Monday at the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

    Buckle up for Baby Driver, a movie so full throttle cool that you want to fist bump the screen. Style is the substance of Edgar Wright's inventive heist flick, a fresh, masterful synching of music and getaway mayhem, as if La La Land's traffic jam was moving, armed and dangerous.

    Baby (Ansel Elgort) is a getaway driver for heist arranger Doc (Kevin Spacey). Plagued by tinnitus, Baby tunes out his distracting “hum in the drum” by listening to music while he drives.
