Teenagers often make poor decisions and parents are left holding the bag or the bill. A mom in North Carolina has been dealing with lots of trouble from her teenage son and she's had enough.

She called police this week when her son took her Pop-Tarts without permission.  The Smoking Gun reports the 17-year-old was actually arrested and charged with simple larceny.  Police describe it as food valued at under $5. The mother says she called police to teach her son a lesson.
