Cops Say Parents Banished Teen For Eating Pop-Tart

A 14-year-old girl who ate an unauthorized Pop-Tart found herself banished to the woods for a week with only a tent, a roll of toilet paper, a flashlight, and a watch, police say. James Driggers, 33, and Crystal Driggers, 36, of Dalzell, SC, were arrested Friday and have been charged with unlawful neglect for their treatment of the teen, NBC News reports. Investigators say the couple sent the girl to wild, hog-infested woods more than a quarter of a mile away from their home, telling her to appear at a fence at certain times to get food (a can of SpaghettiOs was apparently delivered at one point). She was left to fend for herself even when violent thunderstorms rolled through the area Thursday night, reports the State.
