A New Jersey mom was arrested after sneaking her daughter into a tanning booth, where she received severe burns all over her body. We’re sure even Snooki wouldn’t approve of this!

Avid tanner Patricia Krentcil was arrested on April 24 for child endangerment after taking her daughter to a tanning salon, receiving burns all over her body!

Luckily, the child’s kindergarten teacher notified authorities after noticing the girl’s burns at school, the Daily Mail reports.

New Jersey state law makes it illegal for children under 14 from using the booths. Anyone under 18 must have permission from their parents.

Employees at the tanning salon in Nutley, New Jersey didn’t realize that Patricia had snuck her daughter into the stand-up tanning booth, according to the The Bergen County Record.

Patricia was released after posting $25,000 bail.
