This woman won't be winning any mother of the year awards. A Riverton resident is behind bars after leaving her four-year-old child in the car and running from the police in Lander.

Lander PD pulled over Patsy Burbeck on Thursday night for driving with an altered license plate, according to County 10. After Burbeck stopped the car, she fled on foot as the officer approached the vehicle. She was later found hiding underneath a horse trailer several blocks away.

Burbeck had an outstanding warrant from a previous arrest in Colorado. She now faces additional charges of child endangerment, transporting a child without a car seat, DUI, drug possession, and several others.

Thankfully, the child was unharmed and is now staying with a relative.
