SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The mother of a six-month old San Diego baby, seen in a viral video being repeatedly slapped on the head, posted bail Thursday night on unrelated charges and earlier in the day, she told 10News it was not her slapping the child in the video.
Jowi Morales, 18, texted with 10News reporter Travis Rice via Facebook before police arrested her Thursday afternoon.
Rice asked Morales how the baby was, and she wrote the baby was "fine as far as I'm concerned."
Morales wrote that the baby was safe and "people are sending me threats." At the time, police were trying to locate Morales and the child.
