Cell Phone Video Gets Day Care Director Charged With Child Abuse

3 Feb , 2016  

An employee at the Children’s Palace Day Care Center in Clermont, FL filmed the director, Kimberly Reid, repeatedly striking a 4-year old boy and then picking him up and dropping him face down onto the floor.

Police went to the day care last Friday afternoon after the employee sent the video to The Department of Children and Families. The boy’s father when contacted by police said he “did not give Reid permission to strike or drop his child.”

Police spokesperson, Erin Razo, told WESH Orlando: “I don’t know why anybody would do something like this to a child. It’s very disturbing to watch.”

Reid was arrested and has been appropriately charged with child abuse.
