Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne‘s recent West Palm, Florida concert reportedly caused a woman to get arrested after she decided to leave her kids and attend the spectacle.
Details of Florida resident Brittany Harris’ decision and arrest surfaced online this week.
Florida resident and Lil Wayne fan Brittany Harris is in a lil bit of trouble after being arrested Sunday on allegations she left her two young children in the car so she could catch Weezy’s concert in West Palm Beach uninterrupted. Harris, 25, of West Palm Beach, was booked Sunday in the Palm Beach County Jail on two charges of child neglect, according to records from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. The records showed Harris was released early Tuesday morning after posting $20,000 bail. The children are now with the Florida Department of Children and Families. (International Business Times)
To make matters worse, the kids informed law enforcement why their mother was not with them.
The Florida woman was arrested after an employee of the Cruzan Amphitheater took the two young children with him to a West Palm Beach Sheriff officer. The employee, Barry Batchelor, said he observed the 5-year-old and 2-year-old “unsupervised for several hours” in the venue’s parking lot during the Lil Wayne concert. Batchelor spoke to the children around 9:45 p.m. Sunday, and the kids told him that their mother went to the Lil Wayne concert and “left them to stay in the car unsupervised.” (International Business Times)
A mug shot of the 25-year-old mother has also emerged.
Pictured in the adjacent mug shot, Harris attended the Lil Wayne show at the 19,000-seat Cruzan Amphitheatre. Booked into the county jail late last night, Harris is being held in lieu of $10,000 bond on each felony count. Since the children “were left unsupervised for several hours” in a “busy parking lot with an estimated 9000 patrons, numerous vehicles and intoxicated persons,” Harris was arrested and taken to jail. Simultaneously, child welfare workers were “notified to take possession of the kids” deputies reported. (The Smoking Gun)

“I’m invadin’ @BambooMiami tonight ::: @prestigesundays :: #southbeach TURN IT !!!! #HustleGang,” Harris retweeted from T.I. Sunday (July 14).
