What would happen if a 17 year old girl called the police after her mother spanked her?

    The response from the police will be determined, primarily, based upon the criminal code of the state, or, country that the 17 year old lives in. In the US, in most states, the parent, or, primary caregiver, does have the legal authority to use physical punishment on any minor under their legal care. Therefore, spanking a 17 year old is not against the law.

    I must repeat that this truly depends on which state this family resides in as the age of consent differs, as do the laws regarding spanking. 

    Realistic, this parent should have a better means of disciplining their daughter as 17 is well into early adults and this could damage relations between the daughter and the parents.

    Probably nothing, but the older your child is, it's actually quite possible for you to face charges if they so wish.

    In most countries, the police would scold the CHILD for acting 1/4 of her age.

    The law abandoned all logic and common sense.  The Mom is arrested for domestic violence and goes to jail overnight and appears in court next day.  Automatic.  No exceptions.

    Around here she'd get thrown in jail for the rest of her life and tied up in a political scandal orchestrated by crooked millionaire judges and politicians.  Just sayin.

    The cops would come out, ask questions, and maybe tell the girl that the next time she stays out late doing drugs and banging anyone who looks at her, they will arrest her for prostitution.
