Baltimore mom Toya Graham speaks out after dragging son, 16, from riot

Toya Graham, a single mother-of-six from Baltimore, told CBS that she ‘just lost it’ when she saw her 16-year-old son Michael at Monday’s riots carrying a rock and walking towards police officers

A Baltimore mother hailed as ‘Mom of the year’ for clobbering her teenage son and dragging him home from the riots admitted sheepishly on Wednesday: ‘My pastor is going to kill me.’

Toya Graham, a single mother-of-six, was caught on camera whacking her 16-year-old son Michael, pulling off his ski mask and chasing him down the street as rioters clashed with police, looted stores and burned down buildings and cars.

The riots broke out following the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray earlier this month who died of a spinal cord injury after being taken into custody by Baltimore police.

Her actions have drawn praise from moms across the country along with the Baltimore police chief who said: ‘I wish there were more parents out there who took charge of their kids tonight.’

Miss Graham told CBS on Wednesday that she ‘just lost it’ when she saw Michael at Monday’s riots carrying a rock and walking towards police officers.

She said: ‘I recognized those baggy sweatpants and we made eye contact. I was saying ”how dare you do this?”’
