MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Dane County authorities have arrested a woman after her 2-year-old child was found wandering outside wearing only a diaper.

A WKOW-TV report says police were called Tuesday afternoon after the child was spotted. Officers searched the area and found the child's home.

Deputies tracked down the mother, who had allegedly tied the child to a bed with a 4-foot-long rope while she ran errands.

The woman was arrested on a tentative charge of child neglect.
