PHOENIX (AP) — An Arizona woman who left her 5-week-old baby in a car seat on the roof of her car when she drove off has pleaded guilty to child abuse and misdemeanor DUI.

Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman Karen Arra says Catalina Clouser is scheduled to be sentenced March 26 on the plea she entered Monday.

Phoenix police arrested Clouser last year after witnesses found an infant strapped in a safety seat in the middle of an intersection. The baby was in good condition.

According to police, Clouser forgot the boy was on the roof her car when she left the home of friends where she had smoked marijuana.
