Clearwater, Florida -- Clearwater Police have charged a woman with child neglect after her 2-year-old daughter was injured during an attempted drug transaction.

Friday evening Nicole Whitfield was attempting to conduct a marijuana transaction. Officers say her 2-year-old daughter was in a nearby car while the transaction was occurring. 

Reportedly, the deal went awry and the daughter ended up being dragged a short distance by a vehicle. Apparently, the child was trying to get into the same car as her mother when the car began to move. 

The child suffered minor injuries and was taken to Mease Countryside Hospital, where Department of Children and Families officials also responded.

Her mother, meanwhile, was taken to the Pinellas County Jail.

The child was released from the hospital to the custody of relatives.
