Oakdale Woman Arrested for Allegedly Leaving Baby in Car While Drinking at Bar

An Oakdale woman is under suspicion of child endangerment.

A 23-year-old woman was arrested Sunday night for allegedly leaving her baby in her car while she was drinking in a St. Paul bar.

Heather Marie Anderson went to El Alamo off of Robert Street in St. Paul to celebrate a friend's birthday. When Anderson tried to bring her 3-month-old baby into the bar an employee said the baby was not allowed in the bar, according to the Pioneer Press.

The Pioneer Press reports that the woman then brought her baby out to the car and went back inside the bar for another shot before leaving the facility.

A patron who reportedly saw Anderson leave the baby in the car confronted Anderson before she left the bar. 

Police were called to the scene around 10 p.m. before Anderson left and she was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment, according to KSTP.

Anderson was booked in Ramsey County Jail. She has not been formerly charged. The Pioneer Press reports that the St. Paul attorney's office is reviewing the case for possible charges.
