Ericka Bradley, 28, was arrested on Friday after a tip call to the police alerted them to the car full of children at around 6 p.m., according to the police report. The tip caller waited about 30 minutes before notifying the police.
Bradley returned to the car ten minutes before 7 p.m.
According to police, Bradley was verbally abusive to the children in their presence, stating several times that "they were going to get it" and "get spankings" when they get home. When she was informed of being placed under arrest, she again threatened the kids.

Bradley is in Davidson County Jail on $25,000 bond for five counts of felony child abuse.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Queen Elizabeth's youngest son, Prince Edward, is visiting Tennessee to promote one of the British royal family's charities, the Duke of Edinburgh's awards.
