California woman held for duct-taping toddler

HESPERIA, Calif. (AP) - A California woman is under arrest after authorities say she duct-taped her 2-year-old son
San Bernardino County deputies say 19-year-old Danyella Higgins was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of cruelty to a child.
Deputies went to the home of the Hesperia woman after a photo was sent to her friend showing her 2-year-old son with duct tape around his hands, feet and mouth. The recipient called authorities.
The San Bernardino Sun says Higgins told authorities she was taping up a window and thought it would be funny to tape up her son.
Authorities said he was found in a playpen with bits of tape still clinging to him. The boy was turned over to the county child welfare agency.
