Mississippi Mother In Viral Walmart Video Arrested For Child Neglect

The Mississippi woman whose toddler was wearing only a diaper when she took the boy to Walmart on a freezing day was arrested for child neglect, records show.

Kambria Darby, 26, was busted last Wednesday morning following the troubling incident at the Walmart Supercenter near her home in Byram, a Jackson suburb.

Darby was charged with contributing to the neglect or delinquency of a minor and booked into the Hinds County jail.

In a viral video recorded by a Walmart worker, the boy’s lips are trembling as he sits in a shopping cart on his mother’s coat. At one point, Darby tosses a bag of frozen food atop the child’s exposed legs.

When a man confronts Darby and asks, “What’s wrong with you?,” she tells him to lower his voice before twerking in his direction.

Later in the video, a female shopper is seen putting pants and a shirt--which she obtained from a Walmart rack--on the boy. While a stranger is clothing her toddler, Darby stands by scrolling on her phone.

Temperatures on January 17 hovered around the freezing mark. The day before, city government offices were closed due to icy road conditions.

According to a Byram Police Department report, officers seized a 9mm handgun described as Darby’s “personal property.” Darby, the report notes, was arrested after “taking her 2 year old in the store without clothing.”

In a post-arrest Facebook post, Darby denied being a neglectful parent, but said that her children “were taken away from me by CPS.” The “deformation of character is hurting my heart,” she wrote, adding, “They did Jesus the same way.”
