Subject object genitive dative...

A perfect example of why syntax and grammar are so important*.

EDIT: The BBC have changed the headline, boringly. It's still amusing, and not very clear, but it used to be, "MOTHER CHARGED OVER SMOKING BOY, 3". Much better, I think you'll agree.

*Disclaimer: the first version of that sentence may have read "why syntax and grammar is so important....
