A White Plains, NY mom was arrested Sunday for endangering her daughters, which is a misdemeanor. Madlyn Primoff was driving when the kids, a 12- and 10-year-old, started bickering so much, she pulled over and told them to get out of her car, then drove off. She stopped and let the older child back into the car, after the kid ran to catch up, but a passer-by picked up the 10-year-old and called police from a nearby ice cream shop. When the mom went to the police station to pick up her missing child later that evening, she was arrested.
OK, abandoning your child by the side of the road? Wrong, of course. But how many of us have been driven so demented by incessant backseat bickering that we at least fantasized about doing this?
