Being a parent isn’t easy. We all have bad days and do something stupid like push a stroller across the street on a Segway. But this Alabama mom must have totally lost it to get to the point where she was ready to create a “kid on leash incident” in this Verizon store in Rome, Georgia.
Apparently she didn’t realize that most people in a cell phone store either A) already own a smartphone with a camera or B) just bought a smartphone with a camera. Verizon shoppers recorded video of the shocking scene and posted it online.
Kid On Leash Dragged Through Verizon Store By Alabama Mom
Yes, Child Leash Laws Are Real
Although some states, like Virginia, have child leash laws requiring children to be leashed in breweries, neither Alabama nor Georgia has any such laws for cell phone stores. Honestly, I feel really bad for this poor kid. Now this child is famous for being in a kid on leash video thanks to this Alabama mom. Not a cool reason to be famous.
Unfortunately, the child was injured from the dragging incident. Police observed marks on the child’s neck after arresting the mother. She was charged with first-degree cruelty to children.
