Illustration for article titled Disturbingly Tan Mom Arrested After 5-Year-Old Daughter Gets Sunburn

44-year-old Patricia Krentcil was arrested and charged with child endangerment after her 5-year-old daughter was spotted at school with a sunburn. Apparently the little girl told classmates she "went tanning with Mommy." But Krentcil insists that the kid wasn't in the tanning booth:

"It's like taking your daughter to go food shopping," she told NBC 4 New York at her Nutley, N.J. home after being released on $25,000 bail. "There's tons of moms that bring their children in."

"I tan, she doesn't tan," she continued. "I'm in the booth, she's in the room. That's all there is to it."

So have they started arresting parents who smoke in the same room as their child?
