WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A mother accused of kicking her teenage children out of the house during a snowstorm in Ohio is facing child endangering charges.
Eva Harris, 38, of Warren, was arrested Monday and later released from custody, according to jail records.
Police said they were first called to Harris’ home around 8 a.m. due to a dispute with her 17-year-old daughter. According to a police report, Harris told her daughter to leave after she said her daughter poured a drink on her.
The report stated that the girl was outside, wearing a thin jacket and carrying a trash bag full of belongings.
Police said they took the girl to the police station but returned to the home later after Harris also allegedly kicked out her 16-year-old son.
Police contacted Children Services and decided to charge Harris with child endangering after they were unable to get her to answer the door, the report stated. Police noted in their report that Children Services had a previous case with the family from September 2021.
