Alicia Anne Croney was arrested shortly after taking the boy to the emergency room with a deep gash in his leg that required surgery.
The young mother told the doctor she hit the boy with what she thought was an empty bag of Doritos that she had pulled from the trash.
Turns out the bag contained shards of glass from a broken jar.
Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office Major Shannon Clark says he finds the story difficult to believe.
“That someone would spank someone with a Doritos bag is highly unlikely,” Clark told local station Fox 23.
“Not that it didn’t happen, but it seems like of all things that you would have at your disposal in your home, a Doritos bag…I’m just not finding the relevance as far as how that would discipline a child.”
Croney is being held on $50,000 bail on child abuses charges.
