I thoought the stuff on Jerry Springer was fictional but I witnessed a real-life Jerry moment last week.
We responded to an assault call involving a 15 year old girl. When we arrived, the young girl was crying and covered in blood from being hit in the nose by her 26 year old ex-convict boyfriend Charles. She is about 3 months pregnant with his baby and made him upset because she wasn't looking at him while he was talking to her.
The 15 year old lives with her 33 year old mother in a small run-down house with 5 other kids. The mother has six kids with five different last names. After the injured girl was transported to the hospital, the mother revealed that Charles used to be her boyfriend but after a few months of living together, he decided he liked the 15 year old better. He continued to live with mom while "dating" the daughter. We then learned that this is the SECOND time a boyfriend of mom's got the 15 year old pregnant (the first time was not Charles).
A CPS agent was on the property and decided she had seen enough. All of mom's kids were seized by the state due to mom's inability to keep her creepy boyfriends away from her daughter and because of the squalid living conditions.
We were able to track down and arrest the boyfriend later that night. He had a few outstanding warrants and we added two class 3 felonies to his resume for aggravated assault and sexual conduct with a minor (he admitted everything to me during an interview).
