Andre Curry, a 21-year-old father, faces abuse charges after he posted a photo of his one-year-old daughter bound with duct tape on Facebook.
Curry was arrested on Tuesday in Chicago after he posted the photo of his daughter tied up with duct tape on her mouth, wrists and ankles. The photo was accompanied by a caption, which read, This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back ; )
Curry was charged with aggravated domestic battery after he used purple painter's tape to bind his daughter. Chicago Police Department spokesman Officer Ron Gaines said Curry was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
Chicago Police Department spokesman Mike Sullivan said photo was posted back in July and was just brought to the attention of officials on Dec. 14.
Curry's Facebook page, along with the photo, was since removed but Sullivan told ABC News police are in talks with Facebook to get an official copy of the photo.
Chicago police are investigating the case along with the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, according to Fox News. DCFS spokesman Jimmie Whitelow said the agency had no contact with the family prior to the incident.
