Scott, 44, is charged with child neglect for making her 16-year-old son leave the house and locking the door behind him.“Due to the cold weather and leaving him nowhere to go, I charged her with child neglect,” said McMinnville policeman Matthew Stubblefield about the incident that happened in the pre-dawn hours around 4:30 a.m. outside Green Acres Apartments.According to the officer, he was called to the scene and found the teen standing outside.
