A concerned security guard called 911 after discovering a 98-year-old wheelchair-bound mother inside of a hot truck in the parking garage near the Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover, Maryland.
The woman’s 67-year-old son is accused of leaving her inside the car for nearly five hours while he spent the afternoon in the casino.
Dwight Ridgeway McGinnis Jr., of North Carolina, returned to the vehicle around 7:25pm on July 21 and was placed under arrest at the scene. He was charged with vulnerable adult neglect and released on his own recognizance.
Fortunately, his mother is okay, and was picked up by her daughter.
