Alla Kournikova Jail Booking
Palm Beach, FL (The Weekly Vice) – Alla Kournikova, 46-year-old mother of tennis star Anna Kournikova, was jailed after she allegedly left her 5-year-old son at home alone for nearly an hour while she ran errands around town.
According to Palm Beach police, officers were called to Kournikova’s $2 million home when a neighbor noticed little 5-year-old Allen was very upset and soaking wet, pacing in front of his house.
The boy stated that he had jumped out of a second story window and reportedly fell about 15 feet onto a stony side yard. He then told police he jumped into the family's pool because his feet hurt from the fall.
The boy was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for bruising to his feet and lower back, according to investigators.
Meanwhile, police obtained Kournikova’s cell phone number during a search of the residence and attempted to reach her several times and inform of her son's condition. When she finally returned home, she was asked to come into the police station for questioning.
Kournikova stated that she let the boy stay at home because he “didn’t want to go” and when she left she made sure he had a cell phone and dead-bolted door. She told police that when she left, the boy was watching TV on the couch.
Kournikova was booked into jail and charged with neglect of a child without great harm. She was released on $3,000 bond.
