NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A woman was arrested Monday night after police said she left her toddler in a cold car for two hours while she went shopping.

A shopper flagged down officers in the parking lot of the Walmart on Dickerson Pike after spotting a little girl in the backseat.

He told police he saw the girl when he walked in, and she was still there when he was done shopping 45 minutes later.

It was only 30 degrees at the time, and the child was not wearing a coat.

Officers kept the girl inside while waiting for the mom. Police said she didn't come back until an hour later.

Mercedes Sevier, age 24, was arrested and charged with child endangerment. Her bond was set at $10,000.
