Rachel Canning first grabbed our atention when she sued her parents for support and college tuition, claiming that her parents had kicked her out and insisted she pay for her own higher education. Her parents, on the other hand, claimed that she had moved out on her own because she refused to live under their rules, which included breaking up with a boyfriend that they were not happy about. The lawsuit was withdrawn in March, and Canning reconciled with her parents and moved back into the house. However, she stayed with the boyfriend that they didn’t like.
That particular decision appears poised to cause Canning another round of legal fees. According to reports, late Saturday night, Canning filed domestic violence charges against the very boyfriend her parents wanted her to break up with, claiming that he had choked her during a fight. According to the complaint, Canning claims that she and her boyfriend, 18-year-old Lucas Kitzmiller, were together on Saturday night when Canning claims that Kitzmiller attacked her on the street. She ran to her car and drove off, Kitzmiller allegedly giving chase, and went straight to the police. There, she filed the charges, and the temporary restraining order was issued.
As the complaint and temporary restraining order are considered confidential information by the courts, no details beyond this have come to light at this time. The hearing on the restraining order was supposed to take place on July 23, but due to scheduling problems for the lawyers, has been postponed to August 6.

In a move that can only be described as inhumane, Dwight Ridgeway McGinnis Jr. of Raleigh was arrested on Monday for allegedly leaving his 98-year-old mother in a parking garage for five hours.
What was the 67-year-old’s reason for leaving his handicapped mother in such potentially fatal conditions? Oh, he was busy gambling at Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover, Md.
Police said officers were called to the parking garage to check on an elderly female after she was reported to have been left inside a hot truck with North Carolina plates for many hours.
“The only evidence of food or drink in the vehicle was an empty soda can,” police said. “The air temperature at the time of the report was 81 degrees, and the victim was found inside the vehicle with one window only partially open.”
The mother was taken to the hospital. And her incredibly selfish son was arrested when he sauntered back to the car about 10 minutes after the elderly woman had been rescued.
He faces adult neglect charges for the casino incident and was served with an outstanding warrant for failing to appear on a previous charge.
How proud his mother must be.
