An NYPD representative informed E! News that officers reacted to a 911 call at 11 p.m. reporting “unattended children” who were left alone, including, “The mother was placed in custody and charged.”
Now, Veronica is sharing her side of what occurred that night. “When Dax collapsed on December 23rd, I accompanied him in an ambulance to the hospital,” she stated in her declaration to ET. “I asked both a close friend and my parents to rush to my children’s hotel room to attend to them as I monitored them by camera. The hotel would not allow my friend in and instead called the NYPD.”
