A Georgia mother was arrested and now faces child cruelty charges in the first-degree and delinquency of a minor for punishing him by making him walk naked through the Norton Park Elementary school’s parking lot on Halloween, according to a police warrant obtained by FOX 5 News in Atlanta.
Joyce Sweetheart Cole of Cobb County was arrested and released on a $50,000 bond, after punishing her son.
She told officials that she warned her son that if he misbehaved in school again, she would embarrass him in front of his classmates. The incident happened after she was called to school after her son kicked another student. The warrant stated that while the boy was walking through the lot naked, she slapped him on his head.
Cole’s three children, including her son, are no longer in her custody, police told Fox 5 News.
