A South Carolina woman was arrested after she poured water on a nine-month-old baby’s face while she was sleeping.
KTLA reports 33-year-old Caitlyn Alyse Hardy of Sumter County poured the water over the infant’s face twice while she was sleeping. Hardy recorded the disturbing punishment on video and uploaded it on Facebook with the caption: “Payback for waking me up all king times of the da night.”
She was arrested early Wednesday after authorities issued a warrant that accused Hardy of causing “unnecessary pain and suffering or deprivation of necessary sustenance.”
Sheriff Anthony Dennis called the video disturbing and said Hardy will face consequences for her actions if convicted.
“The charges against this defendant will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,”
Hardy faces a charge of cruelty to children and it was unclear if she had legal representation. Buzzfeed News reported that the mother of four was released on bail after posting a $1,500 bond. The case is still under investigation.
