Mom Has Unruly 10-year-old Son 'Arrested' to Scare Him Straight
Remember the father who gave him unruly son an old man's haircut to set him on the right path? Well, 33-year-old Chiquita Hill from Columbus, Georgia took that approach and ran with it in an effort to teach her misbehaving 10-year-old son a lesson. The mother of three says her son, Sean, was misbehaving in class, being "rude and disrespectful, not listening, talking back, not doing his school work." So, she called the local police department to stage a mock-arrest. They put the boy in cuffs then placed him in the backseat of the police cruiser for five minutes. "[Sean] didn't believe me. ... When they showed up to the door, that's when it hit him," she said. "[Sean] gave me the biggest hug and said, 'I'll never do it again.' I don't know what they said to him." According to Chiquita, Sean has been doing a lot better in school since the mock-arrest. She says Sean's 50th grade teacher called her on Thursday with "wonderful reports." "He's doing great in class. He's very respectful to his peers and to adults," she says. "It got to him. It hit home for him."
