28-year-old (holy crap, she’s only 28?) Mary Ann Ayala of Orlando, Florida was arrested for leaving her kids home alone for 12 hours with her 2-year-old pit bull Scrappy. Her kids are ages 3 and 6.
Neighbors had called police to complain of the kids being left alone and the dog barking at 3am.
While police were investigating Ayala drove up saw police and drove off.
Police located Ayala and she was yelling on her cell phone and telling them, “He left my kids at home. He was taking care of my kids!”
Officers spoke to the person Ayala mentioned, but he said he was never in charge of the children.
The pit bull did not injure the children and may be out up for adoption. The kids are now in the custody of their grandparents.
Thanks to Layla for the tip.
