According to a police report obtained by WFTV, Tiffanimarie Pirozzi was in the car line at her child’s school on Oct. 5 when a school resource deputy attempted to give her a ticket for driving without a license and careless driving.

In a news release, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said that Pirozzi became upset after being given the citation and caused a disturbance, which prompted the deputy to trespass her from school property.

Deputies said that Pirozzi threw the ticket out of her car’s window and drove away, WFTV reported.

Investigators said in the news release that Pirozzi then called the school’s principal and threatened to “punch and beat her butt” if she was not allowed onto campus to pick up her child. When that didn’t work, deputies said Pirozzi called 911 and said, “I need someone to meet me at the school and if someone doesn’t help me get my child, I will blow this (expletive) up!”

As a result of the threat, the school was placed on lockdown as a precaution.

Pirozzi told investigators that when the school resource deputy approached her car initially, she didn’t feel like talking to them, and she didn’t know what the piece of paper was when she threw it out of the window, WFTV reported.

In its Facebook post announcing Pirozzi’s arrest, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said, “While I can’t be positive, I’m pretty sure that threatening to blow up the school hurts your chances of getting the ‘Mother of the Year Award’!!”

Pirozzi was arrested and charged with false reports of a deadly explosive, disturbing a school function and driving without a license, WFTV reported.
