Police in Nashville arrested a woman and her friend after a nine-month-old girl was found in a hot car outside a strip club, WSMV reported.
The incident reportedly occurred Thursday afternoon while the girl's mother went inside to audition at Deja Vu.
According to an affidavit, the vehicle's windows were closed.
A friend of the mother told police that she had been going outside to check on the child, but witnesses disputed that.
They said both women were inside for at least a half hour until police arrived. Police said the baby was wearing a coat and was found "drenched in sweat."
It was about 70 degrees outside at the time and authorities said that with the windows closed, the temperature in the car may have reached 100.
Both women face charges of child neglect, while the nine-month-old was taken to a hospital and is now being cared for by the Department of Children's Services.
