A Wisconsin mom who allegedly grabbed a boy after he threw a dodgeball in her face has been hit with criminal charges.
Dominique Jude, 27, says the incident was all a misunderstanding. But prosecutors don't see it that way.
Jude is accused of attacking a 12-year-old boy who pegged her and her son in their faces during a game of trampoline dodgeball at Sky Zone indoor trampoline park in Waukesha. The incident took place during a birthday party over the winter.
In a criminal complaint, Jude is said to have grabbed the boy and yelled profanities at him, then encouraged other kids in the game to throw balls at his face.
In an off-camera interview with WISN, Jude admitted to grabbing the boy, but said she only asked him how he'd like it if he were hit in the face with a dodgeball.
Jude faces criminal disorderly conduct charges, and could spend up to 90 days in jail if she is convicted.
The woman told WISN that the incident has been blown out of proportion and that staff failed to intervene when she was hurt. She said she was just stunned and being overprotective of her son.
