PALM BEACH COUNTY (CBSMiami) – A West Palm Beach mom is behind bars after she allegedly left her kids in the parking lot to attend a rap concert.
Brittany Harris, 25, was said to have been at the ‘America’s Most Wanted Festival,’ featuring Lil Wayne, Sunday night at the Cruzan Ampitheatre.
As a Cruzan employee walked around the parking lot around 7 p.m. that night, a three-year old and a five-year old were spotted near a Nissan Altima.
The kids told the employee that their mother had left them and went to the concert, according to Harris’ arrest report. He then contacted law enforcement working the event.
When the concert was over and Harris returned to her car she was by waiting Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies. Originally Harris reportedly said her cousin had dropped the kids off in the parking lot. She later admitted that she left the kids in the car so she could watch the show, according to the report.
Harris was arrested and taken to Palm Beach County Jail with a bail bond of $20,000.
She faces two counts of child neglect.
