Woman sent to jail for ruckus at mom’s house
Taniesha Hazely readily admitted climbing through a bedroom window of her mother’s home Sunday afternoon, breaking a television and vases, and overturning furniture.
“She was just blaming everything on me,” Hazely, 20, told Gary City Court Judge Pro Tem Itsia Rivera Monday morning. She pleaded guilty to criminal mischief for the ruckus that occurred Sunday afternoon.
Patrolman John Street arrested Hazely, who told him, “I’m sick of her nagging. I’ll do it again, so take me to jail,” the arrest report states.
Hazely, of Chicago, said she and her two children are living with her mother temporarily while she waits on a list for housing.
Rivera sentenced Hazely to 45 days in jail and told her, “It’s her house. She sets the rules. It’s just that simple.”
After being led from the courtroom, Hazely began shouting and beating on the door, but bailiffs escorted her to a holding cell.

High school senior accused of battering his mom
Police arrested a Lew Wallace High School senior who was charged with battery after his mother said he hit her in the head, causing a bloody gash.
Verdell Davis, 18, first pleaded guilty in Gary City Court Monday to the charge, but then didn’t admit he hit his 41-year-old mother who tried to intervene in a fight between Davis and his brother over tennis shoes.
When police arrived at the Glen Park home, Davis was gone, but officers located him near 43rd Avenue and Johnson Street.
Davis said he lives with his grandmother and claimed his mother lives at the Mosely Hotel in Miller, but Lake County deputy prosecutor Joan Kouros noted the victim listed the same home address where her son lives.
Judge Pro Tem Itsia Rivera refused to accept the guilty plea and assigned Davis a public defender for an Oct. 29 court date.
