By TOM HENRYWASHINGTON — A mother and her 11-year-old daughter were caught on camera in New Jersey in a grumpy fashion in the middle of a grudge match over their own clothing choices.
It was their last day on their parents’ Christmas shopping spree, when their parents walked them to the Wal-Mart where they picked up the clothes they had been shopping for.
It was the day before the girls had to attend a Christmas party in the suburb of Camden, New Jersey.
They didn’t get a gift, and their parents say they felt frustrated by the shopping trip.
“It was a little annoying to the point where it was like, ‘Why is she still in the mall?'” said their mother, Kristina Glynn, a nurse practitioner and mom to a 4-year old girl.
The girls had just gotten home from a school play, when they were walking through the mall.
“I was just really angry,” she said.
They stopped at a store, and Glynn asked them to come back.
They asked to come home with her.
“She didn’t like it,” Glynn said.
“But it was a very long time until she finally said, ‘OK, I’ll go to the bathroom.'”
The mother says she did the right thing, and she left them at the mall for a while.
Then she called her boyfriend, who is a store employee.
He came over and apologized for not taking her shopping on time.
“He said, I’m sorry, but you need to leave the mall and go home,” Glyn said.
Glynn said she called him back and explained what happened.
“We didn’t have a choice.
It was just a decision I made.
I just wanted to go home and see my little girl,” she explained.
“And I’m happy she made the right choice.”
But when she returned, she said she was greeted by a police officer.
The girl’s mother, who was wearing a red shirt, was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and disorderly conduct.
She was released from the Hudson County jail.
Glyn said the officer, who had the girl’s name on his police badge, was kind enough to take a photo of the two.
She said she didn’t think he was going to press charges.
“It’s a little weird that he didn’t do anything more,” she laughed.
“I just think it was really rude.
They were trying to make me feel like I was being rude.
But I feel like they should have been more aggressive.
I felt really bad about it,” she added.GLyn said she believes the officer who took her photo was justified in doing so, since she was “fucking annoying.””
You’re not going to be the kind of person that gets mad when someone’s not paying attention,” she remarked.
“You’re going to get angry and say, ‘You’re being rude, you’re not paying enough attention.'”
The teen’s mother has filed a complaint with the city’s Police Department, but the family says it’s still up to the officers to make a decision.
“They’re going home with their kids.
And that’s the way it should be,” she told NBC4.
