PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - A South Florida woman is facing charges after leaving two young children alone in a parking lot while she attended a Lil Wayne concert, authorities said.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that employees at the Cruzan Amphitheatre first spotted the children -- ages 3 and 5 -- around 7 p.m. Sunday. An employee eventually questioned the children, who said their mother had gone to the concert.
The Palm Beach Post reports that deputies responded and caught up with Brittany Nicole Harris, 25, as she left the concert. Harris initially told deputies her cousin had brought the kids, but later acknowledged that she left the children in the car.
Harris was arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect. She was later released on $20,000 bail.
Child welfare workers took the children.
