Public Shaming for Boy Who Claimed he was Selling Drugs

ORANGE GROVE - A mother uses tough love on her son after she learns he's been claiming to sell drugs. The mother says he was just trying to impress his friends.

She turned to Facebook to explain to her friends and the community at large why she decided to put her son at a busy intersection with a sign in order to teach him a lesson.

The sign he held on Sunday afternoon read: "I pretend to sell drugs. Honk if you think I should be ashamed of myself!!!"

The mother wrote on Facebook, "I hope he can come out of this a better kid than I already believe he is. I love him with all of my heart, and that is why I stuck him at the 4 way."

You'll hear from the parents tonight on KRIS 6 News and Action 10 News.
