A Texas mother allegedly cursed and shouted a racial slur as she was being arrested at a bar Sunday night, an incident police say began when the 26-year-old left her infant in a running car outside the establishment while she went inside to toss back some shots.

Samantha Vaughan, 26, was discovered inside TrackSide, a nightclub in Copperas Cove, just before 2 a.m., according to local reports. Minutes before, investigators said they found her baby in the backseat of a car outside.

Vaughan allegedly told officers she was picking up her husband at the club, went to the bathroom, then “sat with him while she consumed the two shots.”

When officers tried taking her into custody, the mother wouldn’t comply, according to the report. After dropping herself to the ground, she “continued to thrash her body around…yell and throw herself about,” police said.
