Rockport woman charged with child neglect

ROCKPORT, IN (WFIE) - A Rockport, Indiana woman is in jail on child neglect charges after what started as an argument inside an Evansville restaurant.

Police say Kristen Harris went into the KFC at Green River Road and Washington Avenue and got into an argument with her boyfriend.

We're told the two went outside and got into a struggle over keys. That's when the victim says a gun fell out of Harris' pocket.

The victim told police the 34-year-old Harris did not threaten him with the gun.

Police say Harris left her two children, ages 7 and 2, inside the car by themselves.

Harris is charged with child neglect and having a handgun without a license.
