A SC woman was arrested after police said she beat her 6-year-old son over a Mother's Day card dispute.

In addition to the alleged beating, the report revealed the 30-year-old tore up the card in question.

A report from the Spartanburg Police Department says Shontrell Murphy is charged with cruelty to children for hitting her young son Thursday.

Investigators said the boy's sister told them their mother was upset because the Mother's Day card her brother made wasn't for her.

Officers said that they saw a handwritten card ripped to shreds at the scene. Her son, 6, was slapped on the front, side and back of his head, repeatedly. The grandmother said the boy was struck three times, according to officers.

According to the report, the boy's sister told police that Shontrell Murphy hit the boy hard because he gave his grandmother a card but not her.

Murphy allegedly confessed to smacking the boy but "does not believe it was in a hard or violent manner", according to reports.

The boy was later transported to the hospital for evaluation and later released.

The children reportedly told police that Murphy hits them often and that they are afraid of her.

Today, she's facing a child cruelty charge in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Murphy was released Friday according to online records, but she could not be reached for comment.
