Jaimee McClure Let Kids Skateboard on Roof



  • Cooooool.

33-year-old Jaimee McClure is that mom who wanted to be cool but failed to remember that even the cool parents have to be real parents every once in awhile.


Police say she left her three kids, ages 5, 8 and 12, home alone. Neighbors have called police in the past, complaining at least one child was skateboarding on the roof of their home.

The children are now in the custody of child protective services. McClure is still at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $7,500 bond.

Pink hair was step number one on the way to having street cred as a cool parent. A piercing was number two. Having a legal rap will complete the trifecta.
