Florida police have arrested the woman who posted a video of her daughter licking a tongue depressor and putting it back into a doctor’s office canister.
Cori E. Ward, 30, of Jacksonville was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with tampering with consumer products without regard for possible death/bodily injury, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. The charge is a felony, punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
The video shows a girl touching several tongue depressors in a container at All About Kids and Families Medical Center. After removing one, the girl licks the wooden tongue depressor before putting in back in the container. You can clearly see a sign in the video which reads, “Please do not touch medical supplies. Thank you!”
