A 14-year-old girl was forced to live in a tent in the woods as a form of punishment.

So what did she do to deserve such a harsh punishment?

Accoridng to reports, she ate a Pop Tart without her parents’ permission.

James Driggers, 33, and his wife Crystal, 36, allegedly sent their daughter out into the forest in Dalzell, South Carolina, with nothing but a flashlight, a roll of toilet paper, a whistle and a watch, The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office said.

The wannabe bodybuilders who were released after a bond hearing on Monday, did not respond to requests for comment.

According to police, the girl was told he had to stay out there for a week and would have to meet someone at a fence at specific times to get food.

NBC reports, her brother delivered her an open can of Spaghetti-Os with a plastic spoon one afternoon, authorities said.

The child was also left to fend for herself during severe thunderstorms that hit the town Thursday night, police said.

She couldn’t return for any reason,” Police spokesman Braden Bunch said. “Not to get a drink, not to use the bathroom, nothing.”

She was found on Friday, after her grandmother called police after hearing she was outside Thursday. The grandmother went in the rain to take the child to her own home right around the corner, authorities said.

The tough punishment was intended to “make her feel how it would be to be homeless,” the concerned grandma told cops, according to the police report.

NBC adds:

The Driggers have five other children, four of which were in the home at the time. Those siblings have been placed in the custody of their grandparents while the 14-year-old girl is with the South Carolina Department of Social Services.

“We feel very confident that the parents were overstepping their bounds,” Bunch said. “From trying to correct a child’s behavior to true criminal punishment.”

The raven-haired and tattooed Crystal Driggers is a “coach” with the Beachbody home fitness program. On her Facebook page, she hawks the company’s workout DVDs and color-coded meal portion containers.

“I am a busy mother of six and I know how hard it can be to squeeze in fitness and nutrition,” she wrote on her company profile. “Let me help you find the time to be happy and healthy!”

On June 3, Crystal posted a photo of her younger children and wrote, “Sometimes with all the teen drama that comes with the three older girls I lose sight of how much fun they can be. I working on changing that. [sic]”

Both parents have been charged with a single count of unlawful neglect of a child and more charges are possible as the investigation continues, police said.
