Anna Kournikova's mother 'arrested'

20 January 2010 [13:43] - TODAY.AZ
Anna Kournikova's mother was apparently arrested over child neglect charges on Monday in Palm Beach, FL.
The arrest came after her 5-year-old son leaped off a second-story roof, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Police charged Alla Kournikova after the boy, tennis star Anna's half-brother, was found injured at the family's residence.

The authorities arrived at the property at around 2.30pm ET, shortly after receiving a call about the child walking alone in front of the house. The boy reportedly climbed out of a balcony window and jumped from approximately 15 feet high, landing in a white stone yard.

He was later treated by emergency personnel and taken to an area hospital.

Alla, 46, is thought to have then arrived at the home close to 2.45pm ET. She allegedly claimed that she locked her son inside the house and left him alone with a phone because he did not want to run errands with her.
