Clover Neighbor Gets Mom Arrested For Letting Kids Play in Yard

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Allowing your kids to play on scooters outside the house on a quiet street seems innocent–and common–enough. But a Texas mom was arrested and spent the night in jail after a neighbor complained that the children were unsupervised.

The parent, Tammy Cooper, disputes the “humiliating” charge, saying she was watching the kids, ages 6 and 9, the whole time from a lawn chair.
But police took the neighbor at her word, and a few hours after the call, arrested Cooper for child endangerment. Cooper told KPRC that the arresting officer told her, “We’re here for you.”

The accused parent spent the night behind bars. “Orange jump suit, in a cell, slammed the door, for 18 hours,” she said.

Cooper is suing the La Porte Police Department, the officer, and the neighbor who made the call. In a statement, the police department said it was “confident of the known actions of the officers on the scene that evening.” The neighbor had no comment.


    • This old busy body should be sued. Police for false arrest, etc. Every neighborhood has these types. One widow lady near me is a busy body that’s in your face, criticizing other yards (since hers is perfect) about over grown shrubs, weeds and tree limbs needing trims. I told her to get a life and don’t ever speak to me again. I am not in an HOA, and told the old biddy to move down the hwy to an HOA where rules are strict. I have complained about barking dogs all night and police issued warnings. Parties all night on weekends down the road were told to stop after 10pm as someone near them called police. It is getting where you cannot trust anyone you don’t know, and even risky to confide in those you know casually, but some people are just plain hateful, who gossip, and have no friends, like the woman around me. Best to cut them off, ignore them.

      • Hi Laura Ann,

        This is the main reason why I moved to The Woods. I have no immediate neighbors; no zoning – no HOA. As un-free as America has become, I have a slice of real freedom out here in the sticks.

        • We used to live way out, but now retired, and need to be close in for convenience. Everything we need is within five miles or less. Husband used to commute 22 miles to work.

  1. The cloverina’s neighbor’s name is Shelley Fuller. She Is the community ambassador at She’s the picture below Dr. Jan Wheeler. 1-866-JOY-Hope Is the phone #.
    I don’t know why you would want such a petty souled busy body freakshow to be a part of socialist fascist charity that claims to assist children in life limiting situations.
    Having that bald margaret thatcher jabba the hut nightmare involved just makes it touher for normal women who don’t pee standing up lick princess leia’s face and scream at the world from their front porch in Hutteese about Bantha Fodder Reagan’s flaccid wrinkled appendage failing to bring her to orgasm due to communist jedi mind tricks.
    I willl send $1000 to LaPorte /Pasadena cooridor Tx the instant I hear this sci fi feminazi dry hump has been brought to a just conclusion.
    What happens to these old menopausal broads why do they hate children and moms without mustaches?
    First they wear only unisex pantsuits. Then they crop the hair to midear length.. Then get cankles. CANKLES WITH 5 o Clock shadow The hair near the ear and get the deep voice. Finally they go totally sexless. Last their supersize gut. Some crumbs from eating doritos in front of I hate men channel on TV. And old forgotten maxipads coalesce to close up the opening to their cobweb covered womstones until finally the whole vaj sludge MERGEs inTO The GUNT of CHTHULU.

  2. Hope she wins the lawsuit. Would serve the busybody right.

    One might say that minding everyone else’s business leads to more trouble/problems. Examples can be seen from individuals upto the nation as a whole.

    People/nations may mean well, but if (one does/they do) not fully understand the situation (one/they) can get more than (one/they) bargain.
