Officials said a pediatrician was arrested after leaving her kids unattended in a car.
Christie Chu, 34, was arrested Tuesday in Northwest Bakersfield after a person called Bakersfield Police to report children crying in a car, but she has since been released after posting bail.
Sergeant Gary Carruesco with BPD said a two-year-old boy and a 9-month-old girl were left in a white minivan anywhere from 1-4 hours in the parking lot of a medical building in Centennial Plaza.
Police believe she works in the medical field, possibly as a pediatrician.
She was arrested on two counts of felony child endangerment.
The children were not released to father as the home was found unfit for the kids. They are now in protective custody.
