Palm Beach - Tennis star Anna Kournikova's mother has been arrested in Florida and charged with child neglect.

A Palm Beach police report says 46-year-old Alla Kournikova left her five-year-old son home alone while she ran errands on Tuesday.

Someone passing by the home found the boy and called police.

The boy told police he jumped out a second-story window, but was not seriously injured.

Police said Alla Kournikova locked the home with a deadbolt and officers had to get inside through a second-storey window.

She was released from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $3 000 bond.

Online records and the police report did not list an attorney. A phone number listed for an Alla Kournikova in Palm Beach has been disconnected.
