Springfield police say they found quite a surprise in the parking lot of a nightclub this weekend, a sleeping five-year-old boy left inside a car alone for two hours.
Police responded to Stetsun's on East Third Street just after midnight Sunday morning.
Security personnel at the nightclub told police the child had been alone for at least two hours while intoxicated patrons fought in the parking lot nearby.
The child's mother, 28-year-old Laurel Polson, was inside Stetsun's. She was arrested and charged with child abuse.
