Grandmother investigated for pictures posted to Facebook

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -

A social media posting that an Ohio grandmother thought was cute, is getting her in trouble.

The woman posted a picture of her granddaughter with a pacifier duct taped to her cheeks and a photo with the 2-month-old in a roasting pan with potatoes.

People on Facebook were so un-amused that they called 911. The sheriff and Child Services showed up at her door to investigate.

"It started as just a joke," explained Jackie Sheaks. "We put a little tape on the pacifier because we were being silly. We wanted to share it with friends because everybody that knows us knows we play around like that....We would never harm our children. Never."

For now, Sheaks faces no criminal charges.

She did, however, vow not to post any more pictures to Facebook.
