34-year-old Adeline E. Steede was arrested on Sunday after showing the world that she’s probably insane. According to the reports, the woman was arguing with her 12-year-old daughter over breakfast food.
The girl wanted cinnamon rolls for breakfast, but the mother wanted her to have cereal instead, which is a silly thing to be arguing about in the first place. Either way, the girl was going to get a sugar-filled breakfast. There are probably some cereals that are actually worse than cinnamon rolls.
Anyway, Adeline got REALLY angry at her daughter. She picked up a steak knife and then threw it at the young girl. The girl quickly picked up the knife and was then chased around the house by her mother.
The girl ran outside, where her mother allegedly chased her with a large lighter and threatened to “light [her] on fire,” according to the court documents.
Officers arrived a short time later. They were able to find the knife under the back porch. They couldn’t locate the lighter. The girl’s father claims he didn’t see the beginning of the fight. It wasn’t until later that he heard the argument and went to check things out.
Adeline faces charges of simple assault, endangering the welfare of children and harassment. She’s scheduled to appear in court on October 7.
