Teen girl made mom buy car at gunpoint



Florida officials say a 17-year-old girl forced her mother at gunpoint to buy her a car.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, the teen was charged with battery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill and unlawful possession of a firearm by a person younger than 18 years old. The teen is at a juvenile detention facility and is not being identified because of her age.

Authorities say the girl pointed a gun at her mother and pistol-whipped her.

The mother said she did not want to press charges because her daughter had been accepted to several Ivy League schools.

Authorities say the gun had been stolen from a Lee County Port Authority officer last year. The teen was not charged in that crime.
