Couple leave kids in shopping cart

COMMERCE -- A Georgia couple got so carried away with snagging Black Friday deals, authorities said they left their kids alone in a shopping cart.

Banks County Sheriff Charles Chapman told WSB radio that 35-year-old Mario Navarro and 31-year-old Esmeralda Elias have been charged with reckless conduct.
