Some mothers take Mother’s Day more seriously than others. Shontrell Murphy of Spartanburg is perhaps a little too into the holiday.
Murphy was arrested on May 14 for allegedly hitting her son after he gave a Mother’s Day card to his grandmother but not to her.
Spartanburg police said the boy’s sister witnessed the event and confirmed Murphy was upset because she did not get a card. After allegedly hitting her son, Murphy tore up the card he gave to his grandmother, the Associated Press reports.
Murphy has been charged with cruelty to children for hitting her son on the head.
If the allegations are true, Murphy certainly needs to dial it back a little.
But just to be on the safe side, always remember your mother on Mother’s Day.
