An Indiana mother is facing battery charges after she allegedly beat her children for opening Christmas presents early, officials said.
According to court documents, 36-year-old Sascha Collins hit the 7- and 9-year-old boys after they went into her room and opened the presents in her closet, according to WISH.
Collins told a police interrogator, the boys were disrespectful and out of control, but she admits she overreacted. When she came home, the girl told police the mother was saying she was "blessed with the worst kids ever" and that they were ungrateful.
Her daughter told police Collins had been drinking alcohol the night before the incident, according to the report.
'When we see these types of these happen it breaks our hearts knowing that this is going on, ' said acting Greenfield Police Chief Derek Towle. One of the boys had bruising on his arms and torso, while the other had marks on his face, arms, torso and leg. She says she spanked them and knows she "went overboard". She recalled that she "just lost it" when she woke up Sunday morning to find her home destroyed and scattered with presents, according to court documents.
