Babysitter Breaks Kid's Arm for Wetting Pants: Cops

A Florida babysitter who was put in charge of three brothers has been arrested after one of the children in her care suffered multiple broken bones, according to police.

What's more, authorities say Haillee Howell injured the 3-year-old last week while allegedly punishing him for doing something he couldn't have possibly helped.

The boy had bruises and scratches across his face and body and told his mother the babysitter hurt him because he had wet his pants, according to an arrest report prepared by the Daytona Beach Police Department.

The mother took the boy to the hospital, where police say x-rays showed two bones were broken in his wrist.

Police said a third bone was broken above the elbow.

Howell, 21, was arrested Friday. She had been the babysitter for the victim and his 7- and 8-year-old brother for five months before the incident.
