LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Washington County, Ind. mother is out of jail, accused of leaving her child strapped in a car seat in her ex-boyfriend's garage.

35-year-old Breana McCarty is charged with neglect of a dependent after she was arrested last Friday night. The Washington County Sheriff's Department allegedly found the 2-year-old asleep in the car seat on the garage floor with a sippy cup, snacks and a diaper bag.

The father says he called police after the mother told him she was leaving the child there while he was at work.

When police arrived, they say McCarty was at the end of the driveway with her car running and another child in the car that she was babysitting.

She bonded out of jail on a $2,000 full-cash bond.
