Mom Arrested For Ejecting Sons, 9 And 13


FORT PIERCE, Fla., Jan. 27 (UPI) — Authorities in Florida said they arrested a woman accused of kicking her sons, ages 9 and 13, out of her home.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said Jayme Beall, 30, told them she stuffed her sons’ backpacks full of clothes and sent them outside around 7 p.m. Monday at the Pineview Mobile Home Park in Fort Pierce because she was angry at the 9-year-old for swearing, reported Thursday.

Beall, who called 911 when she was unable to locate the boys about 20 minutes later, told deputies the 13-year-old has run away before and has a history of violence toward her.

Deputies said the boys were eventually found at their great-grandmother’s house in Boynton Beach, more than 70 miles away.

Investigators did not say how the boys made the trip to Boynton Beach.

Beall was arrested on a felony child abuse charge and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail.
