Woman Arrested After Posting Photo Of Herself Dangling Baby Over Balcony On Instagram
Via Tampa Bay News 9 reports:
A 25-year-old woman faces child neglect charges after posting a photo on social media that showed her dangling her baby over an apartment balcony, 12 feet off the ground.
Friends of Aisha Jean Clark called Tampa police on Tuesday after spotting the photo on Instagram.
Police said when they arrived at her apartment on Nuccio Parkway, they asked Clark if she knew why they were there.
They said she laughed and went inside the apartment to get her iPad, pulled up her Instagram account, and showed them the picture.
Police then arrested Clark and she allegedly told them, “I was mad and I was making a point. I can do what I want with my baby. Nobody can stop me.”
In the criminal report, an officer concluded, “This single act would reasonably be expected to have resulted in serious physical injury or substantial risk of death to the infant.”
Clark and her baby were wearing the same clothes as they were in the photo.
When asked outside the jail if she dangled her child, she responded by saying, “If you all don’t get out of my face…You need to get out of my face.”
When asked about being charged with child neglect of her own child, she said, “I don’t care, you get out of my face.”
When asked why she would take the picture, she repeated the same answer.
Finally, when asked if she had nothing to say, Clark said, “Boy, you’re lucky you’re on camera because I will snap on you.”
She then walked back inside the jail.
So we’re throwing filters on child endangerment pics now?
