Wis. Mom Accused Of Driving Teens To Fight Other Teens

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Madison police arrested a 35-year-old woman over the weekend for allegedly driving a vanload of teens to a home to fight other teens.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports the woman was taken to Dane County Jail Saturday on a tentative charge of contributing to the delinquency of a child. Jail records show she was released the same night on $250 bail.

Police say two of the teens the woman drove to the home were her daughters. One daughter had been involved in a dispute with another girl who lives at the home.

The dispute apparently began over Facebook postings and grew into a couple of confrontations between the two girls at a mall.

It was the second time in 10 days that the woman was accused of driving teens to the home for a fight.

    Wow. What a responsible mother teaching her kids the WRONG thing to do. Very sad.

  2. Another Bob says:

    Chalk up another one for “social networking”.

  3. Jamie says:

    Just another parent, being a “friend” to their child…I guess its easier then actually parenting.

  4. Kally says:

    Her kids will hve a long road ahead of them to unlearn everything that she is teaching them. I see many troubles and lots of jail time ahead in their adult lives.
    They are learning that life is all about causing drama and brining law enforcement into their lives. So very sad.

    I agree with Jamie. Be a parent not a friend. If you do your job as a parent they will be your friend.

    1. Tara says:

      Exactly. My children (now grown) are my best friends!

  6. Victim Du Jour says:

    That happened all the time in Northern Minnesota during the 80’s.

    Welfare Moms are nothing new.

    1. Another Bob says:

      I must have gotten the editted version. I do not see the word “welfare” anywhere in the story.

      1. tara says:

        thank you! a bad parent is a bad parent – and social/financial status does not discriminate.

    2. tara says:

      You are no better than the next – lumping welfare parents with bad parents.
      Quite judgemental of you. I know alot of rich yuppy parent’s that are also bad parents…

      1. Victim Du Jour says:

        Read Chapter 2 in Ann Coulters book “Guilty”, the whole chapter is about single mothers, crime statistics and the prison population.

  7. Michael Clark says:

    How sad…and people wonder why kids act up at times?

  8. JamieinMN says:

    Yup, another parents wanting to be “the cool mom”. I’m all for teaching my kids to DEFEND themselves, but driving a van full of teens to fight is atrocious and just plain trash.

  9. chachacha says:

    They should have beat the mom up instead..

  10. shelly says:

    they should all be sterilized

  11. K. says:

    I have only one question…….where’s the dad?

  12. Carlson says:

    HA! This woman drove a VANLOAD of teens, the vanload being her TWO daughters! C-mon, thats funny right? Im going to go make fun of them on facebook, this is good stuff!

    1. to Carlson says:

      @Carlson — instead of YOU being the source of bs and bad information maybe you can again read the thing. It states clearly two of the girls were her daughters. There were more — but of that group 2 were hers.😉
      And we wonder how come all the BS abounds in cyberspace. Lousy reporting sometimes,,,,and even worse trash tossed about by people who don’t read things properly.
      LMAO at Carlson right now

  13. randy says:

    I heard she had to pick up some beer and smokes for the kids first .What a loser!!

  14. GLP says:

    Carlson must work Fox News

  15. Mark says:

    I wish they would interview the mom to find out what she was thinking. Love to hear a reason for her actions. That, and why it’s only $250 for bail considering what could be the consequences of her actions. People shoot each other for less now of days.

  16. rim-shot says:

    I bet they “axed” whats “supp” and that “you dont know me” was thrown around a few times.
