A Brownsville mother is behind bars accused of endangering her three toddlers when police found her children wandering the streets alone.
Police say the mother used poor judgment when she left her three boys with an intoxicated man while she left the home. Both were arrested and charged with three counts of endangering a child whose ages are 1 to 3 years of age. A concerned citizen spotted the children outside, nude and without supervision and called the police. Police say the man was in no condition to care for the children because he was intoxicated and passing out.
Police arrested the mother when she returned home and remains behind bars at this time.
