A Florida mother who left her three-year-old son home alone while she went to a bar has been arrested after he was found wandering the streets barefoot half a mile from his home.
Deputies in Orange County, Orlando, arrested 24-year-old Nicole Finnell on child neglect charges after little Daniel Finnell escaped the house and made it onto busy Hoffner Avenue.
Spotted by two passers-by, officers were called to pick up the child and then drove around the neighbourhood until they found a home with lights on, a door open and nobody home.
Entering the property, the police found enough evidence to identify Finnell as the boys mother and they waited with the child for somebody to return home.
A short time later, deputies said that Finnell arrived back at the house with friends in a car, but attempted to drive on when they noticed the police car.
The car was pulled over and Finnell was arrested after officers failed to believe her claim that she had left Daniel with a baby-sitter while she traveled to Cowboys bar.
She is currently in Orange Country Jail on a $1,000 bond and Scott Finnell, her father, said that he has no intention of paying it.
