A Florida grandmother was arrested after assaulting her daughter in the face with the used diaper the grandbaby had just soiled.
Police report that victim Jessica Caldwell, 25, returned Monday to her Bradenton, Fla., home and discovered “her mother became intoxicated while caring for her 2-year-old daughter,” according to the Smoking Gun.
The verbal altercation devolved into violence quickly when Caldwell’s mother, Christine O’Keefe, 53, reportedly “threw a used diaper at the victim, striking her in the face,” according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report. During the subsequent mother-daughter scuffle, Caldwell struck her mother in the right brow.
O’Keefe, however, was the only one arrested and was subsequently charged with misdemeanor battery. O’Keefe was released from jail Tuesday after posting $1,000 bond. She is scheduled for a March 27 Circuit Court arraignment.
