A Michigan mom who was arrested for theft after taking away her teen daughter’s cellular phone as a means of punishment for her bad behavior at school has been vindicated.
The Ottawa County prosecutor ultimately dismissed the charges against Jodie May on Tuesday but that hasn’t stopped May from seeking answers.
“I would like answers on why it got so far and how it got this far where this happened within my home. I’m disciplining my child, then I’m being the one handcuffed,” told WOOD-TV in an interview.
May was nursing a 4-month old baby at the time of her arrest.
She said: “He had told me that he was going to arrest me, and I asked him if I could turn myself in on that Monday by myself, that I had a new baby. She wasn’t taking the bottle yet.”
May was later bailed out on a $200 bond, as reported by ABC 7.
