BROWARD COUNTY, Florida -- Thinking fast on your feet is something one Florida mom wasn't so good at. Police say 19-year-old Breona Synclair Watkins was pulled over one morning. Everything seemed normal until the officer heard crying coming from the trunk. When they popped it, they found Breona's 5-month-old baby.

Breona told police that she didn't have a car seat for her baby, so when she got pulled over, she told her 14-year-old passenger to put the baby in the trunk through an opening in the backseat. And get this, the baby was found lying on top of a pair of metal shears, a rusty metal clothes hanger, a plastic CD case and a large rusted tire iron. They also found a gas can and other dangerous stuff in the trunk.

Breona was arrested and charged. That's how this bad mom became our Dumbass of the Day!
