An Oklahoma nanny decided to quit on the spot after her employers declined her request for a raise—but when they wouldn’t give her her final paycheck, since it wasn’t due until the following day, she allegedly held their baby hostage. “We have … I don’t even know how to describe it. Maybe a possible ransom situation,” the baby’s father said in a call to the Logan County Sheriff’s office, per KOCO News 5. “Our nanny has possession of our baby and is threatening not to bring her home unless we pay her a check that’s not due until tomorrow. I don’t know what to do, she’s irate.” Police say the baby was ultimately returned without harm, and the family declined to press charges.
I’m pretty sure the cops could have pressed charges without the parents say so.
