Most kids get grounded for not doing their chores. Some kids get spanked, and if you’re the child of 42-year-old Michele D. Miller, you get threatened with a loaded gun.
The part-time Missouri police officer was arrested Sunday after she threatened her daughter with a handgun. Officers were called to her house just before 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Miller’s daughter claims when her mother returned from a trip earlier in the day, she lost her freaking mind when she noticed the chores were not completed.
Miller rushed out of the house with her handgun and threatened to shoot holes in the swimming pool if her daughter didn’t come back inside. And in a written statement, the daughter says her mother told her, “It would only take one bullet and she wouldn’t have to be here.”
Neighbors confirmed the madness, telling the police that Miller was pointing the gun directly at her daughter. Police charged her with misdemeanor domestic assault. She was released a short time later after posting a $2,500 cash-only bond.
Kahoka Police Chief Bill Conger told reporters Miller has been placed on unpaid leave pending the result of the investigation.
“I talked to the [Memphis police] chief and he said he had to pursue charges. I told him ‘do what you have to do to follow the law.'”
