The driver told the daycare owner; “get this bitch out of my car” before driving off, according to Sharp’s arrest report.
According to witnesses, Sharp held one child by the hand and had the other by her side as they walked away. Sharp then reportedly picked up and dropped each child to the ground repeatedly.
Her two boys are one and two-years old.
According to a witness, “she threw him and like, when you’re trying to rush she was pulling and throwing them. Like picking something up and throwing them.”

That’s when the police arrived.
The police report states, “The defendant would drop/toss her (child) to the concrete ground. The defendant would walk away while then re-grabbing the (child) by the arm holding him in the air as she walked.”
The witness also told police, “She saw the defendant tossing each child to the ground one by one,” and also, “The defendant would then pick both children up at the same time and again would toss them to the concrete ground.”
Police say she had a strong smell of alcohol on her breath, bloodshot eyes, and could not comprehend simple questions. The report stated that she continued yelling at the witness and allegedly tried to fight her.
The witness said, “I started crying. It really hurt my feelings. I ain’t never seen that. Seeing something on Instagram and stuff, you’re like, ‘oh that’s how they’re doing it.’ But seeing something in person, it’s really sad.”
Sharp is charged with two counts each of child abuse without great bodily harm and two counts of child neglect.MORE NEWS: Miami Weather: Isolated Thunderstorms Expected Saturday Evening
