A Little Rock woman was arrested after leaving her 1-year-old son and a dog in a vehicle for more than 45 minutes Tuesday while she shopped at a Kroger store, an arrest report said.

Jasmine Dixon, 25, was charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a minor Tuesday after passers-by at the Kroger at 8824 Geyer Springs Road saw her son and a dog in the front seat of her vehicle for more than 45 minutes, the report said. Dixon told officers she forgot the child was in the car, and officers said they found no car seat in the vehicle, the report said.

Dixon was in the Pulaski County jail in lieu of bond as of Tuesday evening.

    spetic tank, of all your delusions, the evident hate for the protection of children by GD adults is the most sickening.

    As a fair and balanced primate, race or standing in the commmunty should not make a difference in these situations. The statement that I forgot I left my child in the car , if done by a person who has the capacity to drive a car, is just pure BS. I know she is no judge and is not white , but so what? Punish her. Makes me mad as hell over these stories.

    parental rights are much overrated.

    I saw this same type of thing happen right in front of me at the Hwy 65 Wal-Mart in Conway. A young lady pulled up just to the right of the front doors, jumped out with the car running and ran inside. I stopped and looked in the car and there was a baby in the back seat. I walked back in to see where the girl had gone and she was at the ATM. I walked back out and watched the vehicle until she returned. Had she not been of a different race than me, I might would've said something. But, I felt it was better to monitor the situation and not cause a scene.
