HUDSONVILLE, MI (1010 WINS) -- In an eyebrow-raising story from Michigan, a mother took her daughter's cell phone away as punishment for misbehaving at school, and almost wound up in jail.

Authorities say Jodie May was arrested on a theft charge after her ex-husband told cops that he was the owner of the phone.

The charges were thrown out, but not until May had spent a couple of hours behind bars.

May said she was just being a mother and disciplining her daughter the way any concerned parent would.
