Police say mother drove with son on car hood over dentist dispute

BETHLEHEM, Pa. — A Pennsylvania mother faces criminal charges for allegedly driving with her son on the hood of her car after the boy refused to go to the dentist.

Police in Bethlehem Township said the incident began last Wednesday when the 12-year-old boy told 36-year-old Shaurice Jones he wasn’t going to the dentist and climbed on the hood of the car.

Jones then allegedly drove two miles to a regional police office. Police said the speed limit on the road is 40 miles per hour.

LehighValleyLive.com reported that Jones, of Bath, was arrested Monday. She is charged with child endangerment and reckless endangerment and has been freed on $1,000 bail.
