BCBS – A mother pleaded not guilty Monday in a bizarre shoplifting incident on the Cape in which her child fell out of a moving vehicle.
Lisa Degerolamo, 29, and Daniel McLaughlin, 29, kissed while they were handcuffed during their arraignment in Falmouth District Court.
Police say the couple went to a Walmart in Falmouth Sunday afternoon and stole a 60-inch flat screen TV. But as they were loading it into their SUV, a man and his wife noticed them. They also saw a young boy in a car seat in the back seat.
“It was still a pretty strange situation,” the witness who wished only to be identified as “Brian,” told WBZ-TV.
“The kid’s screaming, the guy’s wrapping a white towel around the door of the rear passenger side of the car to keep the door shut because the TV was too big to fit in.”
Brian said the open door didn’t stop the couple from trying to speed off.
“As soon as she took the left and spun around that barrier to go up that hill, the boy just, he really flew out of the car and hit his head off the concrete really, really, really hard. And she made that left and just continued. She flew up that hill. See you later. Gone.”
As Brian and his wife comforted the 5-year-old boy, Degerolamo came back in the SUV.
This makes for a great anti Wal Mart campaign for any town that is thinking of allowing one. If you don’t want little kids in car seats flying around parking lots like ping pong balls then don’t build a Wal Mart, plain and simple. Nobody drives an hour to Big Al’s Appliances to steal a flat screen TV so big that it won’t fit in the car without little Billy getting ejected like a fighter jet pilot over Cambodia. This is the type of magical Sunday family outing reserved strictly for Wal Mart and their illustrious security team.
P.S. I’m not convinced this kid didn’t jump. I’d definitely trade a concussion and some road rash for not having to spend another minute with the two douche nozzles he has for parents.
P.P.S. Here’s the couple of the decade in court…
Someone please do the world a favor and pull those two suckling leaches off each other. I’m sorry, but once you jettison your 5 year old to make room for a stolen flat screen TV you should lose all rights to procreate. Clamp the fallopian tubes and sew the urethra shut, no more kids for these two Cape Cod Bay sea urchins.
