An woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon after police say she injured her child while dragging it through a Verizon store in Rome, Alabama. Melissa Catherine Smith-Means, 37, of Gaylesville, Ala., was arrested by police around 12:30 p.m. She was charged with felony first-degree cruelty to children.
Police say she was observed by customers and employees at a store on Broad Street, dragging a small child around by a backpack leash. The child had visible marks on the neck from the dragging. Best(worst) part? The whole thing was caught on video! Alabama child dragging is part of the culture I suppose? The video is below.
Smile Melissa Catherine Smith-Means, you are Buzz Pirates Douche of the Day.
