A South Dakota woman has been charged with neglect after reportedly kicking five children out of her home and into subzero temperatures over the weekend.
33-year-old Kiyanne Arpan, of Sioux Falls, was arrested early Sunday morning after allegedly forcing five young boys outside when temperatures dipped to -25 with wind chill.
Police say she had allegedly been drinking alcohol before she kicked three of her children and two visiting children outside when they started arguing over toys. The children were all under 11.
The mother of Arpan's boyfriend called police.
Arpan has been charged with two counts of abuse or neglect of a minor younger than 7, four counts of abuse or neglect of a minor older than 7, and one count of simple assault.
