A Florida woman was arrested Wednesday after whipping her 26-year-old stepson with a belt for being late, WPLG reported.

After missing his midnight curfew, Valerie Branch-Galloway of Largo told her stepson she would either tell his father or he could endure the "licks."

The stepson chose to receive the “licks” and was hit 11 times on the buttocks with a leather belt before asking Branch-Galloway to stop, WPLG reported.

She allegedly responded by telling him that he had 19 more lashes coming.

Branch-Galloway lives with her stepson and his father.

She was charged with domestic battery and admitted to striking her stepson but denied he ever asked her to stop.
