N.C. police say Pasadena woman handcuffed daughter

An Anne Arundel County woman has been charged in North Carolina with neglect after police there allege she handcuffed her disabled daughter in a hotel room while she attended a wedding.

Tiffany Michelle Davis, 38, of Pasadena, was being held Monday at the Gaston County Jail on $100,000 bond, charged with one count of abusing or neglecting a disabled adult, according to police and jail records.

Davis' 19-year-old daughter — who police said is developmentally disabled — wandered into a family reunion at a hotel Saturday, said Capt. Mike Lari, a spokesman for the Gastonia Police Department.

Police said reunion attendees alerted hotel employees, who recognized the daughter and took her to her room. There, "the manager saw a chain dog leash and a set of handcuffs attached to the bottom of the bed," Lari said.

Police found Davis at a wedding at a country club, and took her back to the hotel. "She confessed to handcuffing her daughter to the bed so that she could go to the wedding," Lari said.

Social services workers were brought in to help with the case, Lari said.
