Phoenix stripper Samantha Abernathy (pictured) was arrested yesterday after cops discovered she'd left her two little kids, 1 and 3 years old, alone in the house for hours.
Neighbors called the cops at about 7:30 a.m. because the kids were running around loose in the apartment complex. Abernathy had left them alone since about two or three in the morning. When the kids were let back in their apartment, the 1-year-old immediately went to the pantry and began eating dog food. Guess he'd done that before.
The fridge had almost nothing in it but booze. By the way, Abernathy doesn't turn 21 until later this month.
This is our favorite line from East Valley Tribune reporter Gary Grado's article this morning: Police say the fathers of the children arrived at 10 a.m. Sunday, but they didn't know who was supposed to be watching the children or where Abernathy was.

What a cluster f.
These dads ought to read up on the case of Haley Gray and take appropriate action now, before it's too late.
UPDATE: Cops changed the story on Tuesday after New Times called for clarification. Now, police say neither of the kids was actually seen eating dog food.
