Fifteen-year-old Madison doesn’t have a license to drive, but admits she’s taken her mother’s vehicle Joy-riding. Karen claims her daughter has stolen her car over 30 times, but Madison says it was just twice, “over the summer.”
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?
“What goes through your head at that moment that says ‘I have the right to take someone else’s car and go drive around on the street,’” asks Dr. Phil on Wednesday’s episode.
“I don’t know, what I was thinking. I was wrong,” responds Madison.
The conversation turns to the circumstances surrounding a suspected high speed chase that led to a car crash (Madison wasn’t driving) she was involved in just a week before visiting Dr. Phil.
Karen claims Madison and her friends were being chased by people whom they had allegedly robbed of Xanax, at the time of the crash. She claims a firearm was involved, but it’s unclear who the gun belonged to.
