PHOENIX — Phoenix police have arrested a woman for allegedly driving
off after forgetting her baby in a car seat on the roof of her vehicle.
Officer James Holmes tells KPHO
that officers were called out early Saturday after witnesses found a child
strapped in a safety seat in the middle of an intersection.
The boy wasn’t hurt. He’s now in the custody of Arizona Child Protective
Authorities say the child’s mother, Catalina Clauser, her boyfriend and their
friends had been smoking marijuana earlier in the evening at a nearby park.
Upset that her boyfriend was arrested, police say Clauser went to the home of
friends and smoked more marijuana.
Clauser left around midnight. Police say she apparently put the sleeping baby
on the roof and drove off, forgetting he was there.
