WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A trip to the 'Lil Wayne' concert at the Cruzan Amphitheatre Sunday night ended on a bad note for a mother of two.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says that Brittany Harris left her two children aged 5 and 3 in the parking lot of the Amphitheatre while she attended the concert.
An employee of Cruzan says that he saw the two children in the parking lot around 7 p.m.
At 9:45 p.m. he spoke with the children and learned that Harris left them to stay in a car unsupervised. The children were brought to PBSO deputies at the north end of the concert.
Deputies caught up with Harris when she left the concert and went to the parking lot. Harris, according to investigators, initially denied bringing her children but later admitted that she left them in car so she could go to the concert.
Harris, according to PBSO, was arrested on two counts of child neglect.
Deputies say that the kids were allowed to roam a busy parking lot with an estimated 9,000 people, numerous vehicles and intoxicated patrons.
The sheriff's office said the Department of Families and Children took custody of Harris's children.
