Mom Arrested After Baby Laughs Too Loud In Library


People in Georgia can rest easier, knowing that police are protecting them from moms who make a scene in libraries. Donnetta Foster was at the Decatur Library last October using a computer to prepare for a job interview when her toddler laughed too loudly at a flash card. Foster says she quieted the boy, but security guards told her to leave and a library staffer shut down her computer. Foster refused to go, so the library called the police, and she “became irate yelling in a loud and boisterous manner.” She moved away from the library but continued yelling, so police arrested her for disorderly conduct. Now Foster is facing up to a year in jail. She admits that she got too emotional, but her lawyer says the incident, “did not warrant her being arrested.”
