A New York woman is in serious jeopardy of losing her coveted “Mom of the Year” coffee mug thanks to an incident where she bought her children and a friend a BB gun and instructed them to shoot at cars while she drove.
While 43-year-old Susan Becker of Long Island, New York, may have scored some mega cool points with her kids and their friend, in the eyes of the law she is in line for some serious punishment.
Police say that as Becker drove, her 13-year-old son, 15-year-old daughter and another 15-year-old boy took turns shooting a BB gun that Becker had recently purchased out the window of the moving car at multiple parked cars in the area.
Not only was the damage extensive, but it happened over an extended period of time. Police said there were more than 60 reports of damage to car windows over a period of two weeks.
Upon her arrest on Friday, Becker was charged with criminal mischief and endangering the welfare of a child.
