An Australian mom insists she did nothing wrong after losing custody of her 2-year-old daughter because she left the girl by herself while she threw an alcohol-fueled destructive party for her 14-year-old’s birthday.
According to reports, the wild party lasted three days before it turned violent. Police showed up at the house and discovered that Debbie Beakey’s 2-year-old daughter had been left inside the home while the mother partied with her 14-year-old daughter and her teenage friends for days.
“It is teenagers out of control, but you were a teenager once,” Beakey said, defending the out-of-control party.
Party-goers said the home was “completely trashed” except for the room where the 2-year-old girl slept.
“She slept through the whole thing,” someone who attended the party said of the 2-year-old.
The party reportedly got out of control after information was posted on social media. It began on Thursday, and by late Saturday night, police arrived to break it up.
By that point, three neighbors, ages 49, 53 and 57, had to be taken to a hospital after some of the teens beat them up with pool sticks.
Still, Beakey defends the party and blames the destruction on typical teen behavior. Unfortunately for her, she could face a hefty fine and potentially three years behind bars.
Reports also note that the 2-year-old girl has since been handed over into the custody of her father.
