In Michigan, a mother is going through something that many parents have gone through for years. Her son just didn’t want to get up for school in the morning so she applied some tough love and called the cops.
The mother’s name is Crystal Towns, a resident of Grand Blanc, Michigan. Zachary, her 14-year-old son would not get up for school one morning. That is when she called the resource officer at the school to come get him.
“He blamed his sister for not waking him up, and I had it,’ Crystal told the news station. ‘So I called the school resource officer to come pick him up. He wasn’t bad, he just thought he was gonna not go to school again.’
‘I woke him up. He thought he was just going to not go and I said ‘nope you’re learning today boy,” said Towns.
It wasn’t long before the Grand Blanc Township officer showed up and talked to the teenager at the door. He said he was there to give him a ride to school and his place was in the backseat of the patrol car.
“I’m pretty lazy can’t lie,’ Zachary Towns said in honesty. ‘I like to sleep in.”
This didn’t come as much of a surprise to the middle schooler. He enjoys staying up late to play video games and he’s constantly on his smartphone. His mother had told him she would call the resource officer in the past and she finally made good on her threat.
“I don’t think I should have pushed my mom’s limits because that’s the 100th time I’ve done it this year,” Zachary said.
“I wasn’t very shocked at all I was just like, ‘oh Officer Dan’,’ Zachary recalled seeing his school resource officer. ‘She does a lot of things like this.”
Crystal holds down three jobs and is a mother of two. She does not regret pushing her son to get up and go to school.
“I did what I needed to do I would do it all over again and feel good about it,” crystal said.
The lad also has a Christmas gift waiting for him. His mother is going to give him a loud, old-fashioned alarm clock.
