Woman Arrested for Leaving Kids in Car While Attending Lil Wayne Concert
Sometimes people need some alone time. At least that's what Brittany Nicole Harris thought when she decided to leave her 3 and 5-year-old children in the car to attend a Lil Wayne show.
Harris, 25, spent over a day in jail and is facing two counts of child neglect after attending the Weezy gig in West Palm Beach, Fla., on Sunday evening (July 14), the Palm Beach Post reports.
A Cruzan Amphitheatre employee spotted the kids sitting in the parked car around 7PM and questioned the children about their parents. They said that their mom, Harris, was inside the venue to watch the concert. When Harris was leaving the show, she was met by authorities who arrested her.
“She originally said her cousin brought the kids here, but then she confessed that she came here and left the kids to stay in the car so she could watch the concert,” the police report stated.
The children were taken by the Florida Department of Children and Families. Meanwhile Harris was released after meeting the $20,000 bail at 3AM on Tuesday morning (July 16).
