CLEARWATER, Fla. – A Pinellas County woman was arrested after deputies say she slapped her grandma in the face because she wouldn't be her Facebook friend.

Rachel Hayes, 27, has been charged with aggravated battery on an elderly person in the Wednesday incident.

According to the report, Hayes was at her 72-year-old grandmother's house when they got into an argument because the victim wouldn't accept Hayes' Facebook friend request.

In the midst of the argument, Hayes slapped the victim multiple times on the side of her face, deputies said.

Hayes was arrested Thursday morning and booked into jail on no bond.
