(CHICAGO) –- A Chicago man, Andre Curry, has been charged with aggravated domestic battery for posting a Facebook photo of his little girl bound with tape.
“Curry used painters tape to bind his 1-year-old daughter’s wrists, ankles and mouth, and placed a photograph on Facebook,” according to the Chicago Police Department.
Curry, 21, posted the image with the caption, “This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back ; )”
Curry was arrested on Tuesday evening for the felony charge. He was held in jail overnight and is scheduled to appear in bond court on Wednesday.
A police spokesman said the little girl is in the custody of Curry’s mother, but it is unclear whether this was a result of the police investigation. The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is also involved in the investigation.
Mike Sullivan, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department, said the incident is, “still being investigated.”
