Mother Has 12-Year-Old Son Arrested for Opening Christmas Gift Early


A 12-year-old South Carolina boy got an unexpected stocking stuffer — a pair of handcuffs — after he snuck into his Christmas gifts a few weeks early.

After a mother discovered her son had unwrapped a Nintendo Game Boy Advance that was meant for him as a present from his grandmother, she called the Rock Hill Police and had the young man arrested for petty larceny, according to the police report filed this week.

"He took it without permission. He wanted it. He just took it," the boy's 63-year-old great-grandmother told the Rock Hill Herald.

The great-grandmother said in the filed complaint that she wrapped the gift and placed it under the tree at her house — then specifically told the boy not to open it.

But when she checked under the tree Sunday, she found the box unwrapped and opened. The great-grandmother relayed the news to the mother, who is 27-years-old.

When the boy claimed he didn't know where the present was, the mother threatened to call the cops. On that threat, the boy went to his bedroom and grabbed the $85 Game Boy, according to the report.

But mom still called the police.

And the boy "showed no remorse" when the police came, mother said.

The boy was charged as a juvenile and released the same day, said police spokesman Lt. Jerry Waldrop. He was never in jail.

"We wouldn't hold a 12-year-old," he told the Rock Hill Herald.

On Monday night, the mother said she didn't know what else to do but call the police in hopes it would be a wake-up call for her son.

The mother told police that the boy has a history of bad behavior, including shoplifting from stores and stealing money from her. The mother said he even punched a police officer last month and was arrested for disorderly conduct for it.

"I'm trying to get him some kind of help," she told the Rock Hill Herald.

Seriously though, there are a number of (possible) reasons why this happened:

Lack of sex education
Lack of birth control instruction/availability (perhaps)
Lack of responsibility
Lack of parenting skills
Lack of the desire to read rather than own an X-box...

I actually have to hand it to the mother. If she has had problems with this kid, she had to resort to something.

I agree, this family needs sex ed, or at least a package of rubbers drop-shipped to Rock Hill.

The mother is 27, had the kid at 15.

Her GRANDMOTHER was 36 when she was born.

That speaks volumes to me and I don't know about others here, but I'd be extremely embarassed to have to tell anybody that. It amounts to "I cannot control my child." Sounds like the little 12 year old punk needs the slipper or the wooden spoon treatment that I used to get when I did something wrong! Did me no harm apart from the occasional red arse.

Rgds.

Alright.... the age of 12 is still quite young... and dont all you people act like little altar boys and nuns . When I was a kid I would do ANYTHING to figure out what that fat jolly man brought me. This kid was simply being a kid. The mother obviously a psychotic moron wanted to scare the lights out of him. Like who the hell does that .... ON XMAS!

Wooden spoon! Bah. When I was a young chowd my parents taught me right from wrong with a rusty grapefruit spoon!

Who puts Christmas presents out at the beginning of December? I guess they skipped a trailer rental payment to buy that Game Boy.

Even funnier is the "description" of the mom

Name: Brandy
Height: 5"4
Weight: 200lbs
Race: "B"

How about ground the kid? Take away the other presents? Community Service? Or maybe a good ol' fashion spanking?

Sure, she had to do something. But this story makes me wonder how much of the problem with her son is of her own making?

Oh boy, I dont even know where to begin. This sounds like a case of a TOTAL family dysfunction AND very bad parenting combined. I'd begin with the 27 year old mother, which basically this goes to show this is HER fault to begin with. She shouldnt have been out 12 years ago getting jiggy and ending up pregnant knowing the ramifications of having a child is a very huge responsibility. Children are not fish....

Its all on the 27 year old mother. I have no respect for her now, nor will I provide any sympathy if I ever met her.

If a kid has a problem with impulse control (stealing etc.), why would you put a present under the tree a month early? There's some basic common sense issues here. It's almost like they wanted the kid to screw up. Hopefully the police involvement will trigger a social work referral so someone can help these people raise the poor kid.

No its for people who remove themselves from the gene pool before passing on their DNA. You could theoretically still be alive and be a recipient of the award.

Great. So, once again, the police have to intervene simply because a parent is too inept to raise and discipline her own kid. Sounds like the mother should have been hauled off, not the kid.

Despite the fact that she opened her legs at 14/15 and what I think of that, I think she did the right thing to try and teach the kid a lesson in respect.

Sounds like this kid is already a total shit - I just hope his family can try and turn that around, but sadly doubt it.

My contemporaries and I weren't "altar boys and nuns" but we did respect our parents; "No" meant "No". Sadly, that is not (generally) the case these days.

It's not unheard of for police to be asked by a parent to get involved in order to put the frighteners on a kid in the hope that a lesson might be learnt. If it works, then the police might have one less criminal to deal with in the future.

For all we know, that might be exactly what's happened here. A parent at her wits end as to how to deal with him, asks the police for a little help.

Not everybody is a perfect parent, not every life is an easy comfortable one. Rather than just criticising her, perhaps a little thought that a young mother is doing her best in difficult circumstances might be in order.



She's as nervous as a very small nun at a penguin shoot.
