Phoenix Police Say Mom Forgets Baby on Car Roof

PHOENIX (AP) -- Phoenix police have arrested a woman who allegedly drove off after forgetting that her baby was in a car seat on the roof of her vehicle.

Officer James Holmes tells Phoenix television station 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 Services.

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.

    Soooo marijuana don't hurt anyone. Smoke all you want. This person didn't have any sense to start with, I suppose.
