Amy Dawn Cooney: Cops Say She Left Three-Month-Old Son in Car So She Could Get Her Drink On

A Houston woman faces a charge of child endangerment after she allegedly left her infant son in the car this weekend while she drank at a bar.

Court documents show that Amy Dawn Cooney, 31, went into a bar on September 9 to get a drink and left the boy in her car, which was in a parking lot.

KTRK reports the incident happened about 3:30 a.m. Sunday. She told another patron about the child being left in her SUV, triggering police action.

Cooney's Facebook page shows she works at something called Proud Mommy, which has its own Facebook page. That FB page seems dedicated to Hallmark-y type "inspirational"quotes such as "Mothers hold their child's hand for a moment and their heart for a lifetime," and "You'll be his first kiss, his first love, his first friend; you are his momma and he is your whole world."
