Just another episode of people losing their everlasting minds! How in the world do you leave your kids in the car for 3 hours while you enjoy yourself at a concert?

I can't wrap my mind around this one...

[Brittany Harris, 25, was arrested Saturday night after a Cruzan Ampitheater employee found her children, aged five and three, standing alone near a black Nissan Altima in the South Florida Fairgrounds parking lot, surrounded by 'intoxicated persons'. In his police statement, employee Barry Batchelor said he noticed the kids hanging around unsupervised at about 7pm and approached them at 9.45pm when they were still alone. Batchelor said the children told them their mother 'went into the concert and left them to stay in the car,' according to Smoking Gun. 

He then took the children to a venue gate, where he turned them over to sheriff’s deputies. Police found Harris, a hip hop model also known as 'Pretty Red', in the parking lot about 10.30pm when the concert ended. After first insisting her cousin had brought her children to the fairgrounds, Harris 'confessed that she came here and left the kids to stay in the car so she could watch the concert', Smoking Gun reported. Harris was charged with two counts of child neglect, with child welfare officers reportedly ordered to take possession of the children. She is currently in Palm Beach County jail in lieu of a $20,000 bail.]source: dailymail.co.uk
