Farrah Abraham was charged with battery and resisting an officer earlier this week after a boozy June 13 arrest – and her own mother agrees with the District Attorney Office’s decision.

Danielsen, who has been estranged from her daughter for months, told Radar of her charges, “It’s sad to say, but you can’t disrespect other people and get away with it. It’s important for Farrah to learn she needs to respect other people. I agree with the charges.”
Abraham was arrested when police were called to the Beverly Hills Hotel for a “disturbance.” Abraham refused to leave and engaged in a verbal altercation with hotel guests. Lieutenant Elisabeth Albanese told Radar, “The security officer reported that Abraham struck him in the face with her forearm, grabbed his ear and pushed him in the face as he attempted to prevent her from re-entering the hotel.” She was charged on July 16.
If convicted, she could be sentenced to a maximum of 18 months in jail. Danielsen explained how there is “no doubt” Sophia, 9, would be better off with her. “I would have Sophia in a great school,” she said. “She can socialize and be a kid, just like Farrah. She needs to be a regular kid. Go to school and achieve academically. She loves science.”
Danielsen doesn’t agree with Sophia attending events with her mom and constantly going on lavish vacations while she is homeschooled. “She’s 9 years old,” she said. “There are too many pedophiles out there who take advantage of minors. It’s a scary world out there. Sophia is so precious. She is a blessing. I would not put my child on display.”
Although Danielsen believes Sophia would be better off in her care, she is not going to fight for custody. “There are laws in this country that prohibit grandparents from protecting grandchildren,” she explained. “Sometimes it's in the best interest of the minor if a grandparent could step in. Why? To give the parent a time out to take care of themselves. There is no harm in that. Even if I could hire a team of lawyers, there are laws in this country that prohibit grandparents from stepping in and protecting their grand children. We need to fix the laws in this country.”
Despite their estrangement, Danielsen is hopeful she could resolve her issues with her daughter one day. “I do believe it can be fixed,” she said. “Farrah, I love her very much. She is my daughter. I have sacrificed and given my life to her. I wish her nothing but well.”
After years of conflict, they became officially estranged when Danielsen married her second husband, who Abraham does not get along with.
