Should Law Enforcement Get Involved in Sibling Spats?

Should Law Enforcement Get Involved in Sibling Spats?

Siblings can be best friends one minute and miniature ultimate fighters the next. While arguments can be as minor as name calling and backseat squabbles, they can also be intense with hair pulling, scratching and shoving.

Texas police recently arrested, handcuffed and charged a 10-year-old girl with a Class A misdemeanor assault for fighting with her 13-year-old sister. The playground quarrel began when the younger sister would not take instruction from her older sis. Push came to shove and an observer called the police who ultimately arrested the younger sibling for family violence. The case is currently awaiting review by the District Attorney.

Are sibling spats just part of growing up or should police intervene at some point?
