Tempers often flare at the school gates, but threatening to blow up said school is a whole other story.
OK, frustrated is an understatement, as the mum totally lost her cool and not only threatened to ‘blow up’ the school, but also said she’d ‘beat up’ it's principal.
Tiffanimarie Pirozzi, 29, was given the citation outside a Brevard County school by a school resource officer on 5 October, according to Fox News.
Pirozzi was also slapped with a trespass warning for causing a disruption and told she’d have to get someone else to pick up her child, which is when things really kicked off.
Writing on Facebook, Sheriff Wayne Ivey of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office said that Pirozzi chucked the trespass warning out of her car window and called the school’s principal.
Once she got through to the principal, she threatened to ‘punch and beat her butt’ if she wasn’t granted permission to collect her kid.
Unsurprisingly, Pirozzi didn’t get the response she wanted, so took it upon herself to call the local police instead.
She told a dispatcher: "I need someone to meet me at the school and if someone don’t help me get my child, I will blow this b***h up!”
Because of Pirozzi's threats, the school had to go into lockdown until it could be ascertained that she wasn't a risk to students or staff.
The mum was then taken into custody with a $22,500 bond in tow and booked at Brevard County Jail.
She’s facing charges of disturbing a school function, falsely reporting a bomb, fleeing and eluding police and operating a vehicle without a valid license.
On 7 October, Pirozzi was released but she’ll have to appear in court on 8 November.
Ivey said on social media: “While I can’t be sure about how the voting will go, I can tell you that I think there is like zero chance that Tiffanimarie Pirozzi is going to be voted ‘Mother of the Year’ at her child’s school, after she threatened to beat up the principal and then blow up the school itself!"
He added: “Folks it’s real simple, our teachers and school staff have a hard enough job these days without having someone threaten to harm them or our schools!
"There are mature ways to deal with something that you may not like, but threatening to harm a school administrator or the school itself is not going to be tolerated in Brevard County!"
The officer concluded: "Simply put, we will not tolerate someone making threats on our campuses, so if you want to see just how quickly your butt will go to jail for making threats against our schools… mess around and find out!"
