There are not enough profane words for me to comment adequately on this.

COLUMBIA, South Carolina (AP) -- A fed-up mother had her 12-year-old son arrested for allegedly rummaging through his great-grandmother's things and playing with his Christmas present early.

The mother called police Sunday after learning her son had disobeyed orders and repeatedly taken a Game Boy from its hiding place at his great-grandmother's house next door and played it.

He was arrested on petty larceny charges, taken to the police station in handcuffs and held until his mother picked him up after church.

"My grandmother went out of her way to lay away a toy and paid on this thing for months," said the boy's mother, Brandi Ervin. "It was only to teach my son a lesson. He's been going through life doing things ... and getting away with it."

Police did not release the boy's name.

The mother said that her son was found in the last year to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, but that his medicine does not seem to help.

She said he faces an expulsion hearing at his school Wednesday. Rock Hill Police Capt. Mark Bollinger said the boy took a swing at a police officer assigned to the school last month. He has been suspended from school since then.

The boy's case will be presented to Department of Juvenile Justice officials in York County, who will decide what happens to him, Bollinger said. His mother hopes he can attend a program that will finally scare him straight.

"It's not even about the Christmas present," she said. "I only want positive things out of it. ... There's no need for him to act this way. I'd rather call myself than someone else call for him doing something worse than this."

There is a vulgar word that starts with the letter "C" that some people use to refer to women. For me to call a woman this word she must do something qualify her as beyond the "B" word. Before I read this there were only 5 women on the planet who qualified. Now there are six.

Poor kid has adhd and his mom had him arrested! Ouch. Merry Christmas to them!
I would even put the word 'stupid' before the C word.
I'm surprised she didn't try the talk show, teen boot camp route first.
OK. Funny story. In my freshman class today, one girl starts to say the C word and I say "you didn't say what I think you said, did you?" She says, "NO, I stopped." and another girl says, "What does that word mean, anyway? My mom won't tell me."

I was Really Trying Hard not to laugh. It didn't work.
