Misbehaving schoolboy, 10, ‘arrested’ by cops after mom calls police to ‘teach him a lesson’

A mother from Columbus, Georgia, who learned her 10-year-old son was misbehaving in class decided to enlist the help of the local police to teach him a lesson.

Chiquita Hill, 33, said her son’s fifth-grade teacher told her that her boy, Sean, was ‘rude and disrespectful, not listening, talking back, not doing his school work.’

Cops arrived and pretended to arrest him, sticking him in the back of a police car.

Ms. Hill said that she pulled the stunt on the youngster because she believed she had run out of options when it came to his behavior.

On Tuesday the teacher even came round to her home to speak with Sean.

She says that the words ‘went in one ear and out the other.’

‘I knew I had to do something to shock him,’ she told ABC News. 

She said that she was scared that with her son not obeying his teacher that it could escalate into disrespect for authority as an adult, something she believes could be life-threatening.

After the teacher left, she called the Columbus Police Department who agreed to send officers to her home.

At first, her son didn’t believe his mom’s threats, but laughter soon turned to tears when cops showed up at the front door with their lights flashing.

Officers arrived and explained to Ms. Hill what they would do before placing him in handcuffs.

They they stuck him in the back of their police car for five minutes and gave him a good talking to and an all-round scare.

‘Everything happened so fast,’ Ms. Hill said. ‘He didn’t have time to react to anything. … He was scared.’

After his ordeal was over, officers let Sean out of the car and he ran inside to give his mother a hug.

She doesn’t know what words were spoken in the patrol car but her little boy said: ”I’ll never do it again.’,” she said. ‘I don’t know what they said to him.’

Ms. Hill said that after the police left, she talked things through with her son explaining that his behavior and his actions affected those around him.
