Mom Arrested After Kicking Squabbling Kids to the Curb
A mom who was fed up with her 10- and 12-year-old daughters fighting ordered them to get out of the car — and drove away.
Sounds like someone has been watching too many episodes of “Desperate Housewives.”
Of course, it’s not like the woman exactly abandoned them in Compton. She left them in the swanky White Plains business district three miles from their home. The report does not reveal whether the girls had cell phones or whether the frustrated mom, Madlyn Primoff, 45, a partner in a Manhattan law firm, ever returned to look for the girls. However, police did say that the 12-year-old eventually caught up with the mother. Meanwhile, the 10-year-old was found by a “Good Samaritan” on the street, reportedly upset and emotional about losing her mother.
Madlyn pleaded not guilty to a charge of endangering a child. A temporary order of protection was issued, barring her from all contact with the children (Ed. note: Seriously?), who were physically unharmed.
This is why I’m installing a camcorder in my car before Baby Girl arrives. That way, I can use the footage as Exhibit A when I enter my insanity plea!
