When I realized what had happen I proceeded to retrieve my grandson, but was meet by the police. They handcuffed me, investigated the situation and later dropped all charges. However, the Department of Family Services (DFS) substantiate a report of child abuse and is proceeding to put my name in the child abuse registry of the state.
