AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) Sheriff's officials in eastern Georgia say a woman accused of leaving her infant in an unattended vehicle has been arrested. <br />
Richmond County sheriff's spokeswoman Monica Belser says authorities were called to Virginia College in Augusta when someone heard an infant crying in an unattended car Thursday. <br />
Authorities say the child was left in a carrier with a blanket draped over it. The car's windows and sunroof were open. <br />
Belser says a deputy climbed through the sunroof and removed the baby from the vehicle. The boy was taken for medical treatment and is in his grandmother's custody. <br />
Authorities say the boy's mother, 20-year-old Alicia Manigault is charged with child cruelty. Belser says she was taking a final exam for cosmetology school at the time. <br />
