Three teenage girls were arrested after Arkansas police say they terrorized a 1-year-old baby with a Taser.
The baby's mother called police July 9 and told a responding officer that she saw a Snapchat video of the girls "laughing hysterically while taunting the baby girl with a Taser." The baby was screaming out in "uncontrollable fear" and one of the teens hit the child in the head, according to a news release from the Conway Police Department.
"In the video, you can see and hear the electric prongs on the Taser lighting up," Officer Brittani A. Little wrote in a police report obtained by Arkansas Online. Police say a laughing emoji was used on the Snapchat video.
Little also wrote that the baby seemed to be "out of breath from crying so hard," according to Arkansas Online.
"The baby’s mother had been made aware of the video and sought treatment for the child at the hospital, where she contacted police," according to the Conway Police Department. "The mother stated the teens had been responsible for babysitting the child and that she had been unaware of the alleged abuse prior to seeing the video."
