NEW PORT RICHEY, Florida -- A New Port Richey mother has been arrested after her 3-year-old son was found wandering in the street naked.
According to the New Port Richey Police Department, the toddler was found in the area of Hills Drive and Massachusetts Avenue after a good Samaritan spotted the child and called 911.
