PALM BEACH -

Tennis star Anna Kournikova's mother has been charged in Florida with felony child neglect.

She was arrested in January and released from the Palm Beach County Jail after posting a $3,000 bond. Alla Kournikova could face up to five years in prison if convicted of the third-degree felony charge.

Palm Beach police say the 46-year-old left her 5-year-old son home alone while she ran errands, but he escaped the house. Someone passing by found the boy and called police.

He told authorities he jumped out a second-story window, but was not seriously injured.

Kournikova was charged this week. No attorney was listed in court records, and she had an unpublished phone number.
