CRESTVIEW, Fla. (AP) – Florida authorities say a 13-year-old Tennessee boy charged with stabbing his brother told investigators he’d rather go to jail than spend 8 hours in the car with his sibling.
We all hated sitting in a car next to our siblings for a long trip as kids. Not emough to try and literally kill them, .
Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrested the boy Saturday and charged him with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Investigators say he stabbed his 15-year-old brother in the arm three times with a pocket knife.
And one time, at band camp, I pulled a knife out and stabbed my brother three times.
As he was being questioned about the incident, he said he understood his rights and that he didn’t regret stabbing his brother, who had been teasing him. Deputies say the boy told them, “I’d rather be in jail than eight hours in the car with him.”
The boys live in Clarksville, Tennessee, northwest of Nashville.
If you cant take the teasing from you own brother, jail won’t be better. How bad could this ride be? My kids can’t even go up the street without have to stare at their phones the whole time. The last road trip with just the two older boys, they each sat in their own rows and I didnt hear from them for 3 hours.
So maybe the parents should have gotten them iphones instead of swiss army knifes. Would have made for a more pleasant trip.
