A mom left her 7-year-old son alone in a motel room because he did not want to see a scary movie.
Deputies responded to a 911 disconnect at a motel in Kissimmee, Florida and found out the call came from one of the rooms. When they arrived, a 7-year-old boy answered the door and found open containers of beer in the room.
He told officers his mom, 28-year-old Natalie Figueroa, along with her boyfriend had left him alone to go see a movie.
The police contacted Figueroa, who said she had gone to the movies with her boyfriend and left her son at the motel because the boy did not want to see a scary movie.
She also thought her boyfriend’s brother was watching the boy.
Figueroa and her boyfriend got back to the motel. She was arrested and charged with Child Neglect.
