A Mom Was Arrested for Taking An iPhone Away From Her Teenage Daughter

A Michigan woman was arrested after taking away her 15-year-old daughter's iPhone as punishment for getting in trouble at school. The misdemeanor larceny charge was dismissed Tuesday, but Jodie May is shocked she was ever treated like a criminal in the first place. "I would like answers on why it got so far and how it got this far where this happened within my home, I'm disciplining my child, then I'm the one being handcuffed," she tells WOOD-TV. May's ex-husband, who reported the alleged theft, told police that he owned the phone. It was later determined, however, that the phone was a Christmas gift from the ex to the daughter. May, who has a clean record, says she was "just being a mom, a concerned parent" when she took the phone as punishment.
