Mom suing police, neighbor for night at jail

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

A local mom is suing La Porte Police.  She said she spent a night in jail because she let her kids play outside.

The trouble happened last summer.  Tammy Cooper told us her neighbor saw her children playing outside and called police, saying Cooper abandoned her kids.

Just before Cooper tucked her kids into bed, officers knocked on her door, ready to take her to jail.

"I was in shock, disbelief. I couldn't believe it. I never have been in trouble before. I didn't know what to think. My first response was, you know, me? Me? Why? I don't understand."   

Cooper says she is planning to sue the neighbor who called the police.
