(WIDK By AnnaMarie Houlis) - One mother crossed the thick line between what she thought was a joke, and what others saw as child cruelty.
South Florida mother, Courtney Shanvice McBride, 20, was arrested on Sunday after sending a picture of her five-month-old daughter with a plastic bag over her head to the baby’s father via text messaging.
According to Fox News, immediately after receiving the picture, her husband called a relative who then contacted the Davies police.
McBride, claiming what she did was only a joke, attempted to justify her actions by stating that she never tied the bag, and it was only a few mere seconds that it took her to snap the picture.
The baby and her two-year-old sibling have been placed with relatives while the investigation is occurring.
