The Magic, er, Box Ride?
Originally reported by the AP
Albertville, AL -- A 37 year old Alabama mom has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child. Police say she let her daughter RIDE in a cardboard box ON TOP of the van as she went down a State Highway. The police were called when people reported the child sitting on top of the van. The police arrested her. When she was asked about the incident, she said the BOX was too big to fit inside the van, and that her daughter was holding it down. The woman also told the Police Officers that it was SAFE because she had used a cloths hanger to secure the box to the van. Her 13 year old daughter was unharmed and turned over to relatives. A jail worker said the mother was out on bond by Monday.
