A Minnesota mother was charged after leaving her baby with the bar's staff and never return to pick him up.

Alicyn Desantis, 30, was charged with a gross misdemeanor of neglect of a child after the Sunday incident when she left her months old baby with strangers.

The bar employees said that the mother was kicked out of another bar when she came, holding her baby and asking other intoxicated customers to take him. The employees then took the child and cared for him: They changed his "full" diaper and fed him while she has been gone.

Desantis later returned to the bar but didn't ask for her child. When arrested, she told officers that she was intoxicated and had sought treatment for her alcohol use.
