A Will County mother is arrested after her 1-year-old son was bound and gagged with tape.

Megan Reed, 23, is facing charges of unlawful restraint and endangering the life or health of a child.

The alleged incident happened in Joliet in September.

Reed told investigators she was watching over several children who were playing with tape.

She was reportedly out-of-state until recently when she came into the police station with a lawyer.

According to police, Reed admitted to taking a photo of the taped up baby and later sending it to the boy's father who contacted police.
