(Newser) – There are multiple choices you could make when faced with the problem of a child refusing to go to the dentist, most of them not criminal. But that's not the way one Pennsylvania mom allegedly decided to go: Police say that after Shaurice Jones' 12-year-old son refused to walk inside the dentist's office for his appointment and instead climbed atop his mom's car, Jones drove directly to the Colonial Regional Police Department ... with the boy on the hood. Police say she admitted to making the 2-mile drive with the child clinging to the outside of the car, Lehigh Valley Live reports. The incident happened last Wednesday and she was arrested Friday; the 36-year-old faces charges of child endangerment and reckless endangerment. (This woman allegedly drove 70mph while a man clung to her hood.)
