A woman arrested for allegedly doing a burnout with her 10-month-old son in the back seat has given an unbelievable excuse for her actions.
The woman, 23, was found allegedly doing burnouts in the carpark of a doughnut shop on Orange Grove Road, Liverpool, in Sydney’s southwest on Friday about 10.50pm.
When police spoke to the woman they found her 10-month-old baby in the back seat.
It’s alleged her car was illegally modified, she wasn’t displaying her P-plates and didn’t have her licence on her.
But the mum has offered an explanation to Nine News.
“I just happened to go over a speed hump and put my foot down, I wasn't doing a big burnout, I know I stuffed up,” she told Nine News.
Her partner also offered an apology adding what they did was “stupid”.
“We could have hurt or even killed somebody, but you know... We are very, very sorry and we want every young person out there to just take care on the road,” he said.
The woman will also appear in court on July 17 for the offence of aggravated burnout.
Police also contacted Family and Community Services about her son.
