Mom Spanks 14-Year-Old Son On Side Of Road For Stealing BMW For Joyride
When 14-year-old Aaron’s mom, Liza Martinez, found out he stole her BMW to go on a joyride with his friends, she was unhappy and worried as any responsible parent would be. She eventually found her son driving in traffic, pulled him over and spanked him with a belt. And unfortunately for Aaron, it was all caught on camera. Martinez said she didn’t know the camera was rolling when it happened but she’s not embarrassed though.
Her daughter, Liza Campero, in typical sister fashion, was the one who gave her mom a belt to use and posted recordings of it on social media and said her brother deserved it. “I’m sure y’all understand being the oldest and growing up a certain way and seeing the youngest being brought up totally differently,” she said in a video posted on YouTube. “So handing that belt over was like a pleasure, a rite of passage.”
In order to sneak the car out, Aaron disconnected the home Wi-Fi to get around her Google Home monitor. He called his mother at work and led her to believe weather took it out. Then, he left in her BMW.
Aaron picked up a friend whose mom called and told Aaron’s mother when she was worried about her son driving in the rain. Martinez ordered her daughter to grab a belt and meet her at her Escalade. With her daughter riding shotgun Martinez drove around an El Paso neighborhood calling both a friend and her husband before eventually finding Aaron.
“I pulled right out into traffic next to him,” she said. “He was in one lane. I was in the lane next to him. That’s when I yelled at him to pull over now. I feel that I have a debt to society and my society is to make sure my children are productive, law-abiding citizens.”
Campero’s video has gone viral but Martinez has shrugged off the attention and said she only wants what’s best for her kids.
