What The What?! Mother Charged With Child Abuse After Duct Taping Her Kids To Chairs And Forcing Them To Watch Mommie Dearest!
This is quite the macabre story.
Mary Lucas, a mother of two children in Nebraska City, Nebraska, was charged with child abuse on Friday afternoon after it came to light that she duct taped her children — boys ages 4 and 7 — to chairs and made them watch the film Mommie Dearest. What?!
The 28-year-old momma was apparently sick of the boys calling her "the meanest mommy," so she decided to literally force them to watch Joan Crawford's film representation of a mean mommy in the unsettling flick.
According to court docs, though, Lucas is adamant it wasn't her who duct taped her kids and forced them to watch what she termed "Hollywood's perfect representation of a mean mother."
Rather, Lucas argues, it was her boyfriend Glenn Oliver who ended up strapping down the little kids.
