A tattooed mom accused of leaving her baby girl in a car with the engine running while she drank shots in a bar shows no remorse in her mugshot photo.

Samantha Vaughan, 26, can be seen with a wide grin in the police image after her arrest outside TrackSide nightclub in Copperas Cove, Texas in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Officers who apprehended Vaughan at around 2am say she then shouted a racial slur before recording a blood alcohol level of 0.148. The legal driving limit there is 0.08.

Her one-year-old child was found in a safety seat in the backseat of a car with the doors unlocked, according to police. Vaughan was said to have been found inside the club minutes later.
