POLICE: Louisville mom 'forgot' to pick daughter up from Hite Elementary
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville mother was arrested Thursday evening after police say she didn't show up to pick her daughter up from school until nearly 8 p.m.
According to an arrest report, the child is a second grade student at Hite Elementary School. The principal contacted police after 39-year-old Nicole Compagnone failed to pick up her daughter on Thursday. Officers say the principal told them they had contacted Compagnone several times, and each time they were given a different timeframe and different excuses as to why she wasn't there.
Police got in touch with Compagnone, and she arrived at the school around 7:45 p.m. -- about four hours after classes ended for the day. Police say Compagnone "was nonchalant about being late and failed to execute reasonable diligence and care to make sure her daughter was not neglected or abandoned."
Compagnone eventually told officers she hadn't picked her daughter up because she was at work and that she "forgot." Police say she also admitted to having "at least one shot of alcohol to drink." However, police say they learned Compagnone's was "not on the clock" and could have picked up her daughter.
Compagnone was arrested and charged with one count of endangering the welfare of a minor.
