Patricia Krentcil, New Jersey Woman, Arrested For Taking Five-Year-Old Daughter Tanning

by at . Comments

Just when you thought the bar could never be lowered for idiocy, Patricia Krentcil allegedly went and put her 5-year-old daughter in a tanning booth.

The 44-year-old from New Jersey (there's a shocker) told NBC's local New York affiliate that she took her daughter with her to a local tanning salon.

Krentcil, who puts Snooki to shame with her "tan" complexion, maintains that her kid was actually not exposed to any of the booth's synthetic UV rays.

"I tan, she doesn't tan," Krentcil said, insisting that this whole story is merely a big misunderstanding. "I'm in the booth, she's in the room. That's all there is to it."

Krentcil, of Nutley, N.J., was arrested and charged with felony child endangerment last week. She was released on $25,000 bond and is due back in court today.

"It's nothing different than taking your daughter to go food shopping," Krentcil said, incredulously. "There's tons of moms that bring their children in."

Police, though, say Krentcil put her daughter in an upright tanning booth.

New Jersey state law prohibits children under the age of 14 from tanning booths, while children between the ages of 14-17 must be accompanied by an adult.

Police were alerted by school officials, who said that at school, the girl had what looked like a sunburn, but told friends she "went tanning with Mommy."

Rich Krentcil, the girl's father, said it was in fact a sunburn.

"This whole big thing happened, and everyone got involved," he said. "It was 85 degrees outside, she got sunburned. That's it. That's all that happened."

Maybe so, but just look at that woman. Just look at her.


That last comment got cut short. Yes, black people have made some major contributions to the arts, but when black people use computers or work with any other of the many technological advances of modern society, are they trying to be white? What about black classical musicians? And written music? And recording technology? Finally, if whites hate blacks so much, how did we elect a black president?


That is alot of sun, but it looks nice on you!!!!!!


Hopefully this stupide cow would not be surprised that she is running for skin cancer within a few years. May she be a classic example of how it shouldn't be done.


This woman is ridiculous,but so is the comment left by "mita". Do you even know how ignorant you sound??? Its stupid people like you that keep racism issues in America going. According to you white people hate black people, but you obviously are a racist yourself. FYI, not all black women have big breasts and butts, so if a woman is getting theirs altered its because they desire them, not to copy African American women. That would be like me saying that black women get long straight weaves, and blue and green contacts to look white. WHICH IM NOT!!! So please rethink your comment, because all you are doing is making yourself look like a racist idiot. Im not even going to address the music part of the comment. I think Ive made my point!! And for the record, the woman in the video above is obviously sick, so please dont think she represents all white people!!


i liked the news lady's reaction to her on tv. She looked like she was speachless & would never think about anything dipped in chocolate the same. Sorry but she looks like a turd. She actually has a brain in there somewhere but shes embarrassing her poor kid. Just another addiction i guess.


Always got to make something a race issue. Lord have mercy!


What in the world makes that mother think that is attractive. She looks horrible.


Its funny how whites hate blacks sooo much yet want to be just like them: bigger breast, they get breast implants, bigger butts, they get butt implants, they steal black people music; rock n roll, rap, the blues then lie and say they made it up ( Elvis), make blacks hate the color of their skin, yet try to be just like them by getting a tan. smh. That picture is proof. Be thankful for what God gave u and quit trying to change His creation, otherwise u will end up looking like this woman lmao


typical insecure white women thats have to tan the hell out of themselves because they aren't happy in their own skin.Ive heard white girls say they tan because they don't want to look "white"...lmao! Sad,sad insecurity and not being happy with who they are,smh:(


Seriously, that woman's skin looks like a hog's skin after hours on a spit. I don't know whether to puke or go get some mustard and a hoagie roll.
