A Providence woman has been arrested after she was accused of leaving her year-old baby unattended in a van for about 30 minutes in the heat Friday while she shopped for clothes. The Providence Journal reported that a passerby called police after seeing the infant crying in his car seat. The windows were rolled up and the temperature was in the 90s. Decontee Brooks was taken into custody and charged with driving with a suspended license and operating an unregistered motor vehicle. Brooks told police she was in the store for only a few minutes and insisted she was a good mother.
