Mum's unbelievable excuse after doing burnout with 10-month-old baby in car

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”.
