(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after she posted photos of her son with a bruise and claiming that his father did it.
The mother filed a complaint with police and showed them the photo of her 3-year-old son with a large bruise on his rib cage.
20-year-old Taylier Tibbetts of Merrimack, New Hampshire, told police that her son was abused by his father.
Tibbetts then created a GoFundMe page, on which she asked people to give her money for a lawyer so she can fight for custody of her son.
“Please, I’m looking for donations. Anything helps, if you can’t donate share this link, get this viral! Justice for my son,” she wrote.
The father said that he never abused the child. Police determined that the photo on the GoFundMe page of her son was photoshopped to benefit her in the custody case.
Tibbetts was arrested and charged with making a false report. Her bail was set at $2,000.
The GoFundMe page raised only $10 before it was removed.
