Cops: Tot Spent Night In Car While Mom Went To Bar

Updated: Thursday, August 28 2014, 04:50 AM CDT

Police in Connecticut say a toddler spent the night in a car outside a bar after her mother went drinking and ended up in the hospital.

Police say the 2-year-old girl was found asleep Saturday morning inside the locked vehicle in Bristol. She was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Police say her mother, 22-year-old Kelsey James, was found intoxicated and asleep inside the bar late Friday. Emergency responders took James to a hospital for treatment and evaluation.

Several hours later, the hospital called police to say James was awake and asking where her daughter was. Police then located the car.

James is charged with risking injury to a minor and leaving an unsupervised child in a vehicle. Connecticut's child welfare agency is investigating.

James couldn't be reached for comment.
