“Not controlling your anger and then committing a crime to settle a score will get you arrested and a bed at the Green Roof Inn every time,” said Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly. “And, she’s off the list for being the mother of the year by taking her children along with her to a home invasion that could have turned deadly. I commend our team that worked throughout the day and night to quickly solve this case and arrest the offender.”
