Police arrested this super tanned New Jersey mom, whom they say brought her 5 year old daughter to a tanning booth, which caused the young girl to suffer burns.
Patricia Krentcil was charged with second degree endangerment.
The mother says "she loves to tan," (she really must love it) but insisted she never would let her fair-skinned daughter join her in a pod.
New Jersey law does not allow anyone younger than 14 to use tanning booths because of health risk.
The controversy happened after a school nurse noticed the daughter, Anna, had burns which she attributed to "going tanning with my mom."

That mother is scary looking!!
UPDATE: The owner of the tanning salon says employees who worked on the day in question told him the young girl did NOT enter the tanning booth with her mother and rather stayed outside in the waiting room with her father and brother. She has since turned six-years-old.
