EXCLUSIVE

0218-brooklyn-tankard-mugshot
Brooklyn Tankard -- one of the stars of Bravo's "Thicker than Water" -- won't be winning any Mom of the Year awards ... she just got popped for allowing her kid to skip school.

Tankard -- known as "Queen Brooklyn" on the show -- was stopped by cops in Murfreesboro, Tennessee for a traffic offense ... and a license check turned up some outstanding warrants ... including one for "Failure to Cause Child to Attend School."

According to court docs ... Tankard's 10-year-old daughter, Diamond, had 16 unexcused absences from school ... and had another 35 unexcused tardies. 

So they arrested Brooklyn for not forcing her kid to go to school. 

She was booked and released.

I'm sure she sees no problem with her child missing school either. I'm sure the child would be better off being home schooled by her. Cough, cough....

High school should be discontinued. Its a time for parties and pranks and most kids at that age just don't have the time for books.

We used to do lots of funny pranks in high school. One time, I threw the vice-principal right off the roof of the school into some bushes, badly breaking his ankle. He came up to me the next day (on crutches) to shake my hand and tell me what a funny joke that was. I will NEVER forget that day..

Wow.. I see there's a lot of stupid, ignorant little 14 year olds on here. You people need to get a life. Anyway, that "law" seems a bit ridiculous and against our rights. I hated school and put my mom through hell trying to ditch all the time. I regret those days and still feel terrible. If she even attempted to call the police, I would disconnect the phone. (I was a little b*stard.. yea yea).. I couldn't imagine her being thrown in jail for something that was completely my fault.
