A black man gagged and bound his toddler's arms and legs with tape and posted a photo of her on Facebook
Andre Curry, 21, is charged with aggravated domestic battery, which is a felony, Chicago police said. In court, his bond was set at $100,000. The photo at issue shows the girl with painter's tape over her mouth and binding her wrists and ankles. Above the photo on Curry's Facebook page were the words, "This is wut happens wen my baby hits me back. ;)" The Facebook page appears to have been taken down. But the image was picked up by other websites. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office said that the caption was with the photo on Curry's Facebook page. Andy Conklin, a spokesman for the state's attorney's office, said that the girl in the photo is 22 months old. Curry remains behind bars.
