Today’s winner is Brenda Kay Kelley. She gets the award for the following.
Tampa police arrested a woman Thursday night who they say told her daughter to score some drugs for her from school.
Brenda Kay Kelley handed her daughter $150 about two weeks ago and told her to buy her some acid at school, according to an arrest report. The daughter did as she was asked, police said.
