A Florida woman was arrested after police say they received tips from the public about an Instagram post showing her abusing a small child.
Police responded to 23-year-old Tya Posley’s home on Windridge Circle to investigate a report of possible child abuse, but found nothing wrong.
Minutes later, the same officer received an email with the Instagram video attached.
According to her arrest report, the video shows Posley yelling and pointing at the one-year-old child before slapping it on what appeared to be the face and back. The person who anonymously sent the video to police said the abuse had been going on for a year.
Police returned to Posley’s home and arrested her for child abuse without causing great bodily harm.
In an interview with detectives, Posley denied hitting the child. However, after reviewing the Instagram post, police were able to positively identify her as the person seen and heard in the video.
Posley was booked into the Seminole County Jail and has since been released on $2,000 bond.
The child was removed from her custody by Child Protective Services.
