A 35- year-old mother has been arrested after admitting to police that she beat up her daughter’s boyfriend after catching them in bed together in her home in Mesa, Arizona.
Jeanette Woods found the boy in her 16-year-old daughter’s bed after the two had consensual sex. Both teens were asleep when the boy says he awoke to Woods yelling at him and punching him in the face just after 1 a.m.
The boy says that Woods was straddling him in bed and repeatedly punching him when he broke free. She ran after him, however, and continued punching him.
The ongoing attacks on the boy caused him to vomit and wet himself. Woods eventually stopped the attack but threatened that she was “going to get her cousins to take care of him.” The teen took off without getting his personal belongings from the house. He also left his car in their driveway.
Woods admitted to police that she took a baseball bat to the car and caused over $5,000 damage to it. She also took his keys and moved the car away from her home and down the street.
Police responded to this bizarre incident after a neighbor reported a suspicious vehicle. Police learned the teen’s mother was the registered owner of the vehicle and that her son had taken the car.
Jeanette Woods has been charged with criminal damage, assault and unlawful means of transportation.
