COCOA BEACH, Fla. -

A 25-year-old woman from Brevard County was arrested on suspicion of leaving two children -- ages 3 and 5 -- alone in a car while she attended a Lil Wayne rap concert.

Brittany Harris, who was born in Cocoa Beach but lives in West Palm Beach, was arrested late Sunday on two counts of child neglect.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, Harris was at the Cruzan Amphitheater when an employee brought the children to a deputy, who said the kids were left unattended for several hours in a parking lot with an estimated 9,000 fans and “intoxicated persons.”

After the show, deputies found Brittany Harris in the parking lot and she confessed that she left the kids in the car while she went to the show, according to officials.

It's not known how the employee found the children, who were not harmed.

The Florida Department of Children and Families was notified to take custody of the children.

Court documents show Harris received a speeding ticket in Brevard County in January and listed Palm Bay as her residence.
