Mom's Facebook Photo Leads to Arrest

Questionable Facebook Photo Leads to Mom's Arrest

We say be careful what you share on social media, and here's another reason why. Virginia mother Alexis Breeden has been arrested after a photo of her 14-month-old son hanging from a hook appeared on Facebook. According to reports, the post was an act of revenge from the child's father, who wanted to get Breeden in trouble after a fight.

And he succeeded. Several people posted the photo on the Spotsylvania County Sheriff's Office Facebook page to inform them of the potential child abuse. The sheriff's office issued a felony warrant for Breeden's arrest, which prompted the 18-year-old to turn herself in. Breeden is now facing a felony child abuse charge, adding to a lengthy record that includes an assault and battery charge against her mother. As for the child, he is currently in the custody of a family member.
