The best revenge is to lead a good life. Or, in the case of a South Carolina mom, pouring water on your sleeping baby’s face and bragging about it on social media.
Caitlin Alyse Hardy was arrested after waking her sleeping daughter Kate by dousing her with bottled water, according to WIS TV. The 33-year-old mom wrote on Facebook that her horrific behavior was “payback for waking me up all kinda times of da night.”
The 9-month-old baby fidgeted a bit the first time Hardy dumped water onto her face, but tried to go back to sleep. She woke up coughing the second time.
Hardy’s posting prompted other Facebook users to launch a page called @whereisbabykate to try and find the vengeful mom. That group rejoiced when the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office posted notice that a warrant for Hardy had been issued, accusing her of “ill treatment, unnecessary pain and suffering and or deprivation of necessary sustenance upon a female minor child.”
She was arrested a short time later.
That warrant stated child services had also been notified and that charges against Hardy “will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
There were four children living in the home, according to the sheriff’s office. Hardy was reportedly set free on $1,500 bond.
