The Ultimate Payback for Sibling Spats: Getting Arrested



    The Ultimate Payback for Sibling Spats: Getting Arrested
    Seventeen-year-old Trey Robinson was arrested after his brother called 911 during an argument.

    A Plano teenager may have discovered the sweetest revenge for arguing siblings.

    Sixteen-year-old Hunter Robinson dialed 911 after he and his 17-year-old brother, Trey, got into an early-morning argument during spring break last month.

    The rest was simple -- the police asked Hunter if he wanted his brother to be arrested, and all it took was a simple "yes" to send his brother to the slammer.

    "I am shocked to find out that apparently it is against the law for siblings to argue," the boys' mother, Heather Robinson, said in an e-mail.

    Hunter's anger was no joke. His brother's first court date is May 5. He has been charged with assault with bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor that could lead to a fine of $4,000 and as much as a one-year jail sentence, according to the Dallas Morning News.

    "I don't know what to do," Heather Robinson told the newspaper. "If it had been like this when I was younger, my brother and I would both be in jail."

    She told the Dallas Morning News the boys were arguing over the volume of their video games.

    Will this start a whole revolution of getting the ultimate payback on your brother or sister for stealing your stuff, getting beat up or pulling pranks that lead to wetting the bed?
