[su_right_ad]Florida police say a grandmother was assaulted for not accepting a Facebook friend request from her granddaughter.

Clearwater resident Rachel Anne Hayes apparently puts a lot of stock in social media connections.

Pinellas sheriff’s deputies claim that Hayes, age 27, repeatedly slapped her grandmother, age 72, multiple times in the face early Thursday morning for refusing to accept her friend request on Facebook.

According to Hayes’ arrest affidavit, alcohol was a factor.

Investigators say Hayes was at her grandmother’s residence early Thursday when an argument erupted over the Facebook request.

Deputies arrested Hayes on a felony charge of domestic battery on an elderly person at 3:39 a.m. after determining Hayes slapped the victim multiple times on the side of the face.[su_csky_ad]

    That’s precisely why I’m not on Facebook…don’t want my grandchildren slapping me around!

    Seriously, I hope this woman gets the mental health she clearly needs.
