Woman Arrested For Leaving Child In Car Files Lawsuit

Ellen Coyne, the mother who was arrested by Crestwood police for leaving her two-year old daughter in her car while she and her other children went to put money in a Salvation Army kettle has filed a lawsuit in federal court accusing the Crestwood police of false arrest and malicious prosecution. Cook County prosecutors dropped the criminal charges against Coyne last week. Coyne is represented by attorney Blake Horwitz.
