PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman is accused of leaving her baby in a stroller outside in the sweltering heat and then passing out from drinking.
 
According to court documents filed this week, 25-year-old Antoinette Gail Little-Nashio was arrested for child neglect but also has outstanding arrest warrants in Phoenix and Apache Junction.
 
Police say Little-Nashio went to a friend's apartment Sunday to drink and then left her 1-year-old boy in a stroller in a courtyard.
 
She allegedly returned to the apartment and passed out.
 
A neighbor called 911 after seeing Little-Nashio hadn't returned for the infant.
 
Police say Little-Nashio had a blood alcohol level of .389 and was arrested.
 
The infant is in the custody of the Department of Child Safety.
 
It was not immediately clear if Little-Nashio had an attorney.
