          How 21-Year-Old Arrested For Public Intoxication Explains Her Behavior


          October 16, 2017

          David says his 21-year-old daughter, Danielle, has violent rages, refuses to take her prescribed medications, and has been arrested twice.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          Recently, when David picked up Danielle from the local jail after she was arrested for public intoxication, cameras were there to record the exchange between them.

          When David asks Danielle to tell him how she got arrested, she claims it was because she yelled at the officers and “flipped the cop off.” Later, riding in her father’s truck, she elaborates. “Whenever I see any cops, I straight up – I don’t care,” says the 21-year-old.

          “I’ll say what I want to them because I have the freedom of speech for that.” Continuing, she says, “Even if I had been sober, straight up, I would have acted the same way. I would have cussed out the cops. I don’t care for authority.”

          David claims his daughter has had emotional challenges and anger issues from the time he and her mother divorced when Danielle was a young girl. He also claims she began having more serious issues around the age of 7.

          “We tried to get her help,” he says. “She was put on medication that really messed her up a lot, so she just withdrew. She was uncooperative, and it just continued.”

          Why does David say Danielle refuses to see a therapist? Check here to find out where you can watch part one of this two-part Dr. Phil airing Monday.
