One Baltimore mom took matters into her own hands Monday, furiously grabbing her would-be rioter son by the scruff of his neck and dragging him away from the violence.
The jaw-dropping encounter captured by WMAR-TV showed a teen boy clad from head to toe in black, including a scarf over his face, and ready to rumble — until Mom stepped in.
He had just thrown rocks, WMAR reported, when his mother jumped into action.
She grabbed him in the back of his head and smacked the rock thrower several times in the face with her open right palm.
“You want to be out here doing this dumb sh-t?” the concerned, angry mom screamed.
“Get the f–k over here. Get over here now, do you hear what I say?!”
While the boy was able to break free from Mom’s grasp, she managed to guide him back toward police lines and away from troublemakers.
The stunned boy appeared sufficiently warned and at least a little embarrassed by his mom showing him up.
