Wednesday 20 January 2010
Tennis star Anna Kournikova's mother has been arrested in Florida and charged with child neglect.
A Palm Beach police report says 46-year-old Alla Kournikova left her 5-year-old son home alone while she ran errands Tuesday.
Someone passing by the home found the boy and called police.
The boy told police he jumped out a second-story window, but was not seriously injured.
Police said Alla Kournikova locked the home with a deadbolt and officers had to get inside through a second-story window.
She was released from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $3,000 bond.
Online records and the police report did not list an attorney. A phone number listed for an Alla Kournikova in Palm Beach has been disconnected.
