COWETA COUNTY, Ga. -- Police say a Newnan mother used a steel wool cleaning pad to clean makeup off of her son's face.
Veridiana Pardo Meo Erbskorn told police that her son was going through a "rock and roll stage" and recently started dressing differently and wearing makeup.
"He had been going through kind of a change in his life, wearing leather, putting makeup, dying his hair red," said Lt. Cornell Yarbrough with the Coweta County Sheriff's Department.
The mom was reportedly trying to wash the eyeliner and other makeup off of his face. According to the incident report, the victim's sibling called police for a welfare check. When police arrived, they found the victim with injuries to his eye.
