Phoenix mother who left baby on car roof out of jail

PHOENIX — A woman accused of driving while her 5-week-old baby was in a
car seat on the roof of her vehicle has been released from jail.

The Arizona Republic reported a Maricopa County Sheriff’s
Office spokesman said Catalina Clouser, 19, was freed Saturday but is
under electronic monitoring.

Phoenix police arrested Clouser early Saturday morning on child abuse and
aggravated DUI charges after witnesses found a child strapped in a safety seat
in the middle of an intersection.

According to Arizona Child Protective Services the child is in good condition.

Authorities said Clouser went to the home of friends and smoked marijuana for
the second time in a few hours.

Clouser left the house around midnight, forgetting the baby was on top of her
car.
