You’ve heard of soccer moms, but apparently they have nothing on baseball moms. Or at least one baseball mom in particular.
A mom in Long Island, New York, was upset when her son didn’t make his baseball team’s travel squad. So she sent letters threatening violence against the coach, his wife and their 14-year-old daughter.
Janet Chiauzzi, 44, even sent a letter to the principal of the coach’s daughter’s school accusing him of molesting his kids. She was arrested on Saturday night.
The molestation letter led to an investigation by Nassau County Protective Services, according to the New York Daily News. Officials determined the allegations were false.
More letters were also sent to the East Meadow Little League team calling for the coach to be fired.
Chiauzzi has been charged with stalking, falsely reporting an incident, endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated harassment. She will be arraigned today.
She kind of makes those parents who yell insults at other people’s kids on the sidelines look pretty good, doesn’t she?
