MONROE, Connecticut (WABC) -- A Connecticut woman is facing charges after police say she let her 10-year-old son drive her car on public roads while streaming it on Facebook Live.

Authorities say 38-year-old Lisa Nussbaum, of Monroe, was arrested Friday after several residents complained to officers of a live-streaming video on Facebook showing a child driving a car back in December. The investigation had been ongoing ever since, culminating in the arrest.

Officers determined Nussbaum recording her son drive the car on public roads throughout the town, saying the video was taken from the passenger seat of Nussbaum's vehicle.

She is charged with risk of injury or impairing morals of a minor and was released on a promise to appear in Superior Court in Bridgeport on Friday.

The Connecticut Post reported on Monday that Nussbaum hinted there may be more to the story.
