Anne Arundel County police reported a 67-year-old man who left his handicapped 98-year-old mother in a hot car for hours while he gambled at Maryland Live! Casino. Police received a call around 6:37 p.m. on Monday to check on the well being of the elderly lady. Police say the truck alone for nearly 5 hours and the son, who was driving the vehicle, left her alone to go to the casino. The 98-year-old lady is confined to a wheel chair and can’t provide basic needs for herself. The only source of food or drink left in the car was an empty soda can.
