Mom, Cops: 10-Year-Old 'Scared Straight' by Fake Arrest

By    |   Monday, 04 May 2015 10:54 AM

Georgia mom Chiquita Hill worked with the cops recently to create a "scared straight" moment for her misbehaving 10-year-old son, and pictures she shared of his fake arrest have since gone viral on social media.

Hill, 33, told ABC News that her son, Sean, had been disrespecting his fifth-grade teacher for weeks, being "rude and disrespectful, not listening, talking back, not doing his school work."

Talking out the problem was not working, so on Tuesday she invited the teacher over to the house for a one-on-one to find out what was going on.

Hill said the teacher's words weren't working either, and went "in one ear and out the other."

That's when Hill contacted the Columbus Police Department, explained the situation, and asked them for their help.

"I knew I had to do something to shock him," she later explained.

The officers arrived with lights flashing and even played the siren a bit. They soon had a chat with Sean, then cuffed him and sat him in the back of their cruiser for five minutes while Sean cried and apologized.

After being let out, he ran to his mother.

"[Sean] gave me the biggest hug and said, 'I'll never do it again,'" she said. "I don't know what they said to him."

"I'm glad I did this. He will be 11 this month. He's hitting that pre-teen age . . . I understand that he will be going through changes . . . But with all the things going on in Missouri and in Baltimore, I want to stop anything from happening while he's young and impressionable."

Hill also spoke about the Toya Graham, the Baltimore mother many called a hero after she was captured on video last week smacking her rioting son.

"I don't want to be the Baltimore mom," she said. "I completely understand why she did what she did, but I don't want to get to that point with my only son."
