A Florida woman faces charges after Palm Bay police say she punched a child in the face and threatened the officer who arrested her.
Police arrested Kiara Oliver, 37, at an apartment complex on Daffodil Drive Southwest.
Investigators said a witness told officers she saw Oliver grab a girl by the hair and yank her from the pool at the complex. The witness said she then socked the girl in the eye with her fist, according to the arrest report.
Officers said they spoke with the victim who confirmed that Oliver punched her in the eye, which appeared swollen and red.
Police arrested Oliver, who repeatedly made threats after she was placed in handcuffs while being transported to the county jail.
Oliver faces charges of corruption by threat against a public official and child abuse.
