LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Hudson Police have charged a San Antonio woman of leaving her young son at a baseball park with no intention of returning to pick him up.

Stephanie Lynn Nash, 41, is charged with abandoning a child.

Officer Joe Burton said he obtained a warrant for her arrest within the last month after investigating the incident. He said he was able to determine she left her child at the baseball park in Hudson and had no intentions of returning to pick him up.

Burton said he did not think she was trying to get rid of him but that she "has some other issues." He did not go into detail about what the issues may have been.

Pct. 1 Constable Tom Selman arrested Nash on the warrant during a traffic stop on Sunday afternoon.

Burton was off-duty on Monday during a phone interview and did not have the report in front of him to provide details, including the child's age or when the incident occurred.
