According to reports, authorities got involved when one of the child’s sibling called 911 and reported the incident. The woman was apparently not in favor of her son’s newfound rock and roll phase and said it was causing her son’s behavioral changes and ridiculous appearance with all the leather jacket, eyelener and red hair dye dilemma.
Veridiana Pardo Meo Erbskorn is now facing child cruelty charges after she used a Brillo pad to scrub eye makeup off her son’s face.
She allegedly used a Brillo pad, a combination of steel wool, and soap to remove the eyeliner off her son’s eye.
The boy was immediately treated in the emergency room at Piedmont Newnan Hospital. Medical staff told investigators the boy had soap residue on his face and scratches to one eye. It is also not certain whether his eye was permanently damaged.
The mother was charged with two counts of child cruelty.
