A Tennessee mom faces charges after allegedly posting a Facebook Live showing her shake her 1-month-old daughter. 

Tybresha Sexton was taken into custody on charges including aggravated child abuse after several people called police Sunday to alert them to the video, WTVC reported.

At one point, Sexton allegedly picks the baby by an arm and drops her, according to the arrest report detailing what was allegedly seen in the video. At another, she allegedly shakes the infant. She also is allegedly seen blowing smoke at the child.

The video has since been removed. 

When officers turned up on her doorstep, police said Sexton denied any wrongdoing and told officers to go check on the baby. But they reportedly detected the smell of alcohol on her breath and so ended up detaining her. 

En route to the detention facility, Sexton allegedly told officers she "didn't want that f****** baby anyway."

Sexton was being held on a $100,000 bond by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. She is due in court Friday and has not yet entered a plea.
