Mischievous grandma Madea lands in jail, where she meets a variety of mixed-up characters.
Keshia Knight Pulliam and Sherri Shepherd both also starred in the 2005 film Beauty Shop.
God don't like you... He grew you in a petri dish!
While the exact charges against Madea are not specified at the start of the movie, when she is in court all charges are dismissed due to the police not reading her "Miranda". The sole time Miranda is applicable under U.S. case law is when there is custodial interrogation by the police (questioning where the suspect is not free to leave). Any crimes the police witness they do not need to interrogate the suspect. The violation of fleeing the police is shown and battery on an officer is inferred. Miranda would not need to be read for either of these offenses to be proved, and a lack of it being read would have no bearing on the validity of the charges. If the police violate a suspect's rights by custodial interrogation without the Miranda warning, the sole penalty for the violation is the suppression of any statements made by the suspect.
