Brothers and sister fighting in the backseat of a car while the parents pull their hair out in the front and threaten to pull the car over right now — we've all been there. What makes this sibling squabble different? For one, the children weren't really children exactly; the brother is 18 and the sister is 21. Another thing: when mom had enough and pulled the car over, the brother stabbed the sister in the face.
The Lorain Morning Journal reports:
The siblings’ mother told police she was driving when the two started physically fighting. When the mother stopped the vehicle, Sharon Alexander was hitting her brother in the head with her fists and the fight continued outside, according to the report.
She added Calvin Alexander has mental problems and is on medication.
They were broken up and Calvin Alexander was put in the front seat, his sister in the back. Sharon Alexander continued to yell at her brother and hit him in the back of the head. He got out of the car, started walking away and she followed, attacking him again, the report stated.
Suddenly, the fight stopped and Sharon placed her hands over her face, yelling that her brother stabbed her in the face. Calvin Alexander then yelled, “I can’t take it anymore. She just won’t stop hitting me,” and walked away, according to the report.
So, parents, remember to frisk your kids before getting them in the car.
