Kournikova's Half-Brother Falls From Second Story, Mother Charged With Neglect
Palm Beach, FL, United States (AHN) -- The mother of retired tennis star Anna Kournikova was arrested Tuesday for child neglect after her five-year-old son jumped from a second story window and was found wandering the street, according to the Palm Beach police department.
Alla Kournikova, 46, told police her son had refused to do his chores, so she locked him in the house with a cell phone. The boy then apparently jumped out the second-story balcony 15 feet down in between two air conditioning units onto a white stone yard.
He told police he jumped out the balcony and then into the pool because his feet hurt. Neighbors called police, who responded to the call that a child was unattended outside the residence at around 2 p.m.
The boy was treated by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
The elder Kournikova returned to the house at around 2:45 p.m. to find police waiting for her with handcuffs.
At press time Anna had not posted anything on her website or her twitter account concerning the situation. Her agent could not be reached for comment.
Kournikova, 28, peaked at No. 8 on the ATP world rankings in 2000. She stopped regularly competing on the WTA tour in 2003, but still participates in charity matches regularly.
