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

When she realized the card wasn't for her, Murphy tore it up and hit the boy repeatedly around the head, a police report says. She said the card was for their grandmother, according to the station.

Murphy told police the boy had behavioral problems in school and wants to discipline him.

According to the report, the young boy made a card for his grandmother and when Murphy realized it wasn't for her, she ripped it up and began hitting her son.

Shontrell Murphy was arrested Friday in Spartansburg County, South Carolina, after a woman called 911 saying her daughter had slapped her grandchild, per WYFF.

Spartanburg Police Department officers say they saw a handwritten card torn to pieces at the scene where the grandmother was there with the two children.

Parents demonstrate at school where 8-year-old was bullied
However school spokeswoman Janet Walsh said previously Carson Elementary had zero reports of bullying in the August-December term. He had no signs of any medical or mental health issues, and was an "adorable" and "happy-go-lucky" child.

Murphy admitted to smacking the child, according to a police report, but 'does not believe it was in a hard or violent manner'.

The boy was taken to the hospital and later released, reports said.

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

The victim told officers that his head hurt and he was sad.

Cruelty to children, a misdemeanor, can net offenders up to 30 days behind bars, and a $200 fine.
