          14-Year-Old Admits To Chasing Her Sister With Butcher Knife


          February 11, 2019

          Destoni says when she gets mad, her anger takes over and although she only intends to argue with people, she finds herself punching, hitting and knocking her head into things. The 14-year-old admits that she’s made up rumors about teachers in school and that she’s threatened to shoot other children.

          Destoni also admits that she has “chased” her sister and her sister’s babysitter with a butcher knife, because they were “kind of annoying” her.

          “What goes through your mind at the time that gives you permission to say, ‘I’m going to take a butcher knife out of the kitchen, and chase somebody and threaten their life with it’?” Dr. Phil asks the teen on Monday’s episode.

          “I was mad,” she replies.
