A Hopkinsville woman was arrested on wanton endangerment charges yesterday morning after her 2-year old was allegedly found walking alone on Lafayette Road.
Officers were called to the MaxFuel Express on Lafayette Road around 7:30 to the report of a small child walking alone and unsupervised. About two hours later, the child’s grandmother called the ECC looking for the little boy.
That led Hopkinsville Police to the mother—21-year old Sierra Chambers of Hopkinsville—who said she had been out Friday night and left her son in the care of relatives who are 14 and 15 years old.
The toddler apparently walked away after the teen babysitters fell asleep, with the boy found wearing only a t-shirt and a diaper. Chambers was arrested and charged with wanton endangerment and lodged in the Christian County Jail.
