Police: Mom burns son's dirty clothes, gets arrested

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. — A Tennessee woman ended up in jail after police said she burned her grown son’s clothes in an apparent attempt to persuade him to clean up after himself.

According to a police report, Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a house in Crossville early Saturday morning to respond to a report of a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they found a pile of clothes burning in a carport.

According to Deputy Chuck Hennessee, the son, Daniel Hill, said he and his mother, Theresa Marie Conley, 53, had been drinking and that while he was passed out on a couch, his mother gathered up several articles of clothing he had left lying around the house, including his work uniforms, carried them to the carport and set them on fire.

No one was injured, but the residence sustained fire damage to some vinyl siding, according to Hennessee’s report.

Conley was charged with reckless burning and vandalism and was placed under a $1,500 bond.

Information for this story was reported by the Crossville (Tenn.) Chronicle.
