And we have another candidate for mother-of-the-year award. Following an earlier story of a mother who forced her 9-year-old to pose naked for ‘porn shots’ as a gift to her fiancé, the new contender for the title is 25-year-old Brittany Harris, of West Palm Beach, Fla.
Harris was arrested late Sunday on two counts of child neglect. stemming from leaving her children — ages 3 and 5 — alone in a car. That’s in summer, mind you, in a part of Florida that has been experiencing high temperatures in the 90’s.
But Harris must have had a good reason, right? It was to attend a rap concert starring someone named Lil Wayne.
According to station WKMG in Orlando, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office maintains that “Harris was at the Cruzan Amphitheater when an employee brought the children to a deputy, who said the kids were left unattended for several hours in a parking lot with an estimated 9,000 fans and ‘intoxicated persons.’”
After the show, deputies found Brittany Harris in the parking lot and she confessed that she left the kids in the car while she went to the show, according to officials.
It’s not known how the employee found the children, who were not harmed.
The children are now under the watchful supervision of the Florida Department of Children and Families.
