Moms slaps son, rips him from Baltimore riots

Posted: Updated:
 A Baltimore woman is being dubbed "Mother of the Year" after she's caught on camera slapping her son several times and tearing him away from the riots in Baltimore. 

The woman, Toya Graham, told CBS News that she recognized her son on live television and went looking for him. "That's my only son and at the end of the day, I don't want him to be Freddie Gray," said Graham referencing the 25-year-old Baltimore man who died in police custody.

Graham told CBS News, "At that point, I just lost it. I was shocked, I was angry, because you never want to see your child out there doing that."

Graham is a single mom with six kids, according to CBS. She says, "I'm a no-tolerant mother. Everybody that knows me, know I don't play that."
