August 8, 2005 -- ONE of the "Brat Camp" kids reverted to form last week — and is now charged with seriously injuring a Boston family in a speedboat accident.
Jada Chabot, 15, who is one of nine troublemakers on the hit reality series "Brat Camp," was driving the boat when it slammed into an inflatable craft on a lake, sending two sisters to the hospital.
"I thought we were all gonna die," said Agenor Moraes, the injured girls' father, when he saw Chabot's boat speeding toward his family.
The "Brat Camp" grad was dragging her boyfriend behind the boat on a knee board at the time.
"She was look ing at the guy she was pulling around," said Moraes. "He yelled at her to watch, but she just kept looking at him."
"This is the biggest shock of my life," Chabot told a reporter for the Boston Herald in an interview outside her parents' lakefront home. "I could have killed seven people. I feel so embarrassed just walking around town."
Police charged Chabot with, among other things, negligent operation of a boat.
Jada is described on the show as a "compulsive liar who is always making excuses."
"She has dropped out of two boarding schools and nine private schools in the last six years," says the show's Web site. "Instead of going to school, she throws parties and experiments with sex, drugs and alcohol."
She is one of a group of hard-to-discipline kids who were put into a wilderness survival program intended to break them down and solve their problems.
The show was taped over the winter in Oregon. — Post staff writer

I'm sure the girl you put in the hospital would trade places with you. :ohno
Saying sorry just isn't enough!!! :down
wow, this is the 1st I've heard of this, very scary. Jada is very self absorbed, I doubt she can feel much for anyone except herself. I've warmed up to all the kids on the show except her. She's a real brat imho, she doesn't even seem to care about her family.
As a mother of two emotionally disturbed children, I have one question ...
Why in the world was this girl out driving a speedboat by herself? She obviously has many issues, and I don't care if she showed some improvement, there is no way she should have been driving that speedboat (unless a parent was there). It is too much responsibility.
IMHO whoever allowed her to take that boat is just as much to blame.
don't you have to be 16 to drive a boat? also I know that if someone is driving and someone is behind the boat skiing, tubing or whatever another person must be in the boat with an orange flag to let others know when the person behind the boat is in the water.
She's in "Brat Camp" and she complains that the producers wrongly portrayed her as being a "brat"? Sounds like she needs to go back and start over until she learns something.
