A passerby found the child, helped the child get away from the side of the road and spent 20 minutes trying to get Elmore to answer the door of her home, before calling the police, according to an arrest report.


Instead of thanking the passerby, deputies said Elmore became angry the good Samaritan was in her yard.

The suspect was arrested and charged with child neglect. She made her first court appeared on Tuesday.
