      SC mom charged after leaving son at gas station


      BOILING SPRINGS, S.C. (AP) - A South



      Carolina woman has been



      charged with



      neglect after stranding her son, who has



      cerebral



      palsy, at a gas station.


      Spartanburg deputies say 37-year-old Maranda



      Deett Ross was



      driving with her son in Boiling



      Springs on Thursday morning.


      Authorities say Ross was angry that her son did



      not answer



      "Yes, ma'am" when she asked him



      if he was hungry.


      Authorities say Ross pulled in to a Boiling



      Springs convenience



      store parking lot and told her son he could walk the five miles



      home.



      Deputies say the teen called his father, who



      called police.


      Ross was charged with neglect of a child or



      helpless person. She



      was released from jail on



      a $20,000 bond, and it wasn't known if



      she had an attorney

      .
