A mother was arrested on a charge of child abuse after allegedly slapping her son for flushing her rent money down the toilet of their home, police in Florida said.

Orange County police said that they have arrested 24-year-old Danielle Whipple, after being accused of hitting her son because he flushed $720 down the toilet.

Police officers who arrived at the scene around 7:45 p.m. on Sunday, found that the boy had a black eye and a hand print on the side of his face.

The Department of Children and Families gave Whipple’s boyfriend temporary custody of the child.

Whipple has been investigated twice before on accusations of child abuse. The child admitted to flushing the money down the toilet because his mother refused to watch a movie with him.

Whipple was booked into Orange County Jail, and she was released on bail.
