Largo, Florida —  The arrest of a 73-year-old grandmother has some asking… where do you draw the line when it comes to punishing unruly teens?

Theresa Collier says she’s never been in trouble her entire life, but this week, the grandmother found herself behind bars in the Pinellas County Jail after slapping her granddaughter for swearing at her.

“My heart’s going like this.  I just thought I was going to die.  I wanted to crawl in a hole,” Collier told 10 Connects, as she broke down in tears.

Collier says she invited her 18-year-old granddaughter, Felicia Collier, to her house so she could use her computer to do homework.
