A West Palm Beach, Florida, woman was arrested and charged with child neglect after she attended a Lil Wayne concert and left her two children unattended in her car. The name of Wayne’s current tour, America’s Most Wanted, feels even more appropriate now.
Radio.com spoke with Deputy Eric Davis of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to confirm the report, as well as gather more details. Brittany Nicole Harris attended Lil Wayne’s concert at the Cruzan Amphitheatre Sunday night (July 14) in West Palm Beach. While she went into the concert venue to watch Weezy’s performance, she left her two toddlers, ages three and five, unattended in her car.

An employee spotted the children near a Nissan in the parking lot during the show. The employee alerted the authorities, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“[She had] the kids in the car [and] a lot of our deputies work those concerts and we have zero tolerance for nonsense,” Davis told us.
Harris left her kids for more than two hours as the concert went on. When the concert let out authorities questioned Harris and she was arrested and charged with two counts of child neglect, Davis added. She was released yesterday (July 16) on $20,000 bail and her court date has been set for August 13.
