Another chapter in the case of the Nightmare Nanny of Upland. Diane Stretton, the nanny who refuses to leave the home of the Bracamonte family, holed up in her car outside the Upland police station for hours.Apparently Stretton thought someone was following her and drove to the police station to report it, KABC reports. Police told her it was just a photographer and that it was OK to leave, but Stretton wrapped up in a windshield cover to hide her face and stayed in her car, finally leaving at about 3 a.m. this morning.

The Bracamonte family is taking legal action against Stretton after they hired her off of Craigslist to be their nanny and she refused to leave after they fired her for allegedly not doing her job. The family resorted to such measures as locking their refrigerator at night in an effort to get her to leave.
