According to Rucks Russell in Teen visiting Houston for dance classes taken into CPS custody, 13-year-old dancer Landry Thompson had traveled to Houston from Oklahoma with two other dancers. After a day of training, the three dozed off in their car. They woke up surrounded by police. Unbelievably, Landry Thompson was placed in Child Protective Services. Her mother "claimed she was told she’d have to fly to Houston to get her daughter out. But 11 hours later, following repeated phone calls to officials, Landry was released back into the custody of her instructors."
