August 28, 2008

A mother was charged Thursday morning with leaving a child unattended, the Washington County Sheriff's Department said.

Angela Elizabeth Britton, 36, is charged with leaving her 2-year-old child in her home while she was drinking at The Colonial Inn, deputies said in a news release.

Police said they believe Britton was in the bar from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m., officers said. She may have left the bar several times to check on the child, police said.

The child's father arrived home and discovered the child, who was not harmed, had been left alone, police said.
