Officers removed the baby from the car and provided medical treatment. A woman, later identified as Vanwagner, then ran out of restaurant with no shoes on and told police the baby was hers and that she had been inside for 30 minutes for one “drink,” according to police documents.
Police said Vanwagner was aware she left the child inside the car with the engine turned off.
Vanwagner refused to give any further statement, according to the affidavit of complaint. She was arrested, and the child was given to a family member.
