“We gotta take care of them kids, man, I know you heard Obama”-Lil Wayne
(AllHipHop News) Chances are 25 year old Brittany Harris did not hear President Obama’s 2009 presidential address to children to improve their school performance but she sure heard Lil Wayne. According to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, the Florida woman left her two children unattended in a parking lot at the South Florida Fairgrounds in order to attend a Lil Wayne concert.
An arena employee at the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach found Harris’ two children, ages five and three around 9:45 pm in the parking lot next to a Nissan Altima. The children informed them that their mother had left them in the car in order to watch the Lil Wayne concert. After the worker escorted them to the sheriff’s deputies, Harris was located by investigators around 10:30 pm in parking lot.
Harris initially deceived the investigators by claiming her cousin brought the children to the parking lot before later admitting “that she came here and left the kids to stay in the car so she could watch the concert” according to the affidavit. She was subsequently arrested and held on $10,000 bond for each of her felony accounts. Due to the child endangerment charges, Harris’ children were taken into the care of child welfare workers.
Harris is also known as Pretty Red and has appeared in a few music video.
