Warren, Ohio – According to authorities in Ohio, a woman is facing child endangerment charges after allegedly forcing her teenage children out of the home during a snowstorm.
According to prison records, the 38-year-old woman from Warren was arrested on Monday and subsequently released from custody.
A disagreement between the woman and her 17-year-old daughter led to police being summoned to the woman’s house at about 8 a.m., according to police. According to the police report, the mother requested that her daughter leave after alleging that her daughter had spilled a drink on her.
According to the allegation, the teenager was standing outdoors, wearing a thin jacket and carrying a garbage bag filled with personal items.
Warren police claimed they transported the girl to the police station, but later returned to the residence because the mom had also reportedly kicked out her 16-year-old son, according to the police report.
According to the report, the woman was charged with child endangerment after police were unable to convince her to answer the door. After contacting children’s services, the woman was charged with child endangerment. Children’s Services had a prior issue with the family, which was resolved in September 2021, according to the police report.
According to police, there were several inches of snow on the ground and temperatures in the 20s when the incident occurred.
The woman has entered a not guilty plea to the accusations against her, and she is scheduled to appear in court once again on March 1.
