Mom Arrested For Taking Her Teens Cell Phone Away

Mom Arrested For Taking Daughter's Phone Away

A woman was arrested and taken away from her home and newborn baby for taking away her 15-year-old daughter's cell phone as a form of punishment. The mom said deputies arrived at her house and told that she would be arrested on a misdemeanor theft charge. The mom explained to the deputy that she had taken the phone from her daughter because she got in trouble at school but he still arrested her. Her ex-husband called the cops on her for taking the phone away. The Ottawa County prosecutor dismissed the charges once they were in court but the mom is having a hard time figuring out how the situation escalated so far in the first place.
