By all accounts, 17-year-old Rachel Hachero has—err, had—everything going for her. The Fort Myers, Florida teen is an Ivy League-bound honors student at the renowned Canterbury School. And then she pistol-whipped her mother into buying her a 2004 Nissan 350Z.
Rachel reportedly went into a fit of rage when her mom refused to cosign on the car, grabbing a 9mm Sig Sauer, and slapping it across her face. She then demanded mom accompany her to the dealer and ink the deal. Fearing for her life, she complied, and then waited until her daughter hit school the next day to call police.
Through it all, Rachel's mom didn't get the maternal instinct slapped out of her. She doesn't want to press charges and ruin her daughter's prestigious scholarships. Still, Hachero is being held in juvenile detention by judge's orders. Hachero has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, unlawful possession of a firearm by a person younger than 18, and battery.
Oh, and to top it all off, the gun turned out to be one of three stolen last year from a Florida Port Authority employee. Rachel, Rachel, Rachel—give us a call in a few years!
