Mother Arrested for Leaving Baby in Car While She Auditioned at a Strip Club

A woman from Nashville, Tennessee, was arrested last week after apparently leaving her nine-month-old daughter in a hot car while she auctioned for a position at a strip club. Kelsey McMurtry was trying out as an exotic dancer at Déjà Vu Showgirls while her daughter sat locked up in a 100-degree car wearing a winter coat.

According to PEOPLE, a pedestrian noticed the baby in the car and called 911. Once officers were able to get to her they noted that she was soaking wet from sweat. Now the 24-year-old mother and her 19-year-old friend who claimed to have been watching the child face neglect charges.
