Mom Arrested for Taking 6-Year-Old Daughter Tanning

Tanning enthusiast Patricia Krentcil was recently in hot water when she's accused of child endangerment by letting her 6-year-old daughter tan in a tanning bed:

Krentcil said when the school nurse asked her daughter how she got burned, she simply said, ‘I go tanning with mommy.’” However, the woman said her daughter’s burn was not from getting into a tanning bed, but from being outside and playing in the backyard.

“She’s 6 years old. Yes, she does go tanning with mommy, but not in the booth,” Krentcil said.

While little Anna might not be able to tell the story exactly as it happened, Krentcil is still in trouble with the law.

“The whole thing’s preposterous!” she said.

Krentcil said the incident has darkened her favorite hobby, but not enough to stop.

That's not tanning, that's polishing your boots and not knowing when to stop. I've seen antique mahogany tables which look like stripped pine in comparison to her face :)

Wow. Tell me that was from the Onion.
Funny thing is her arrest picture didn't look that brown. I think she sprayed one on for the cameras.
