Tampa, Florida - A Tampa mother is behind bars Monday after beating her one-year-old child for eating her marijuana.
Tampa Police say India Couch, 22, faces drug and felony child abuse charges. Investigators say the child was left unsupervised, found the pot in her mother's purse, and ate an undisclosed amount of the drug.
That's when police say Couch beat the child with a sandal and then hit the one-year-old hard enough to leave welts.
TPD also says this mother attacked her live-in partner with a dumbbell.
