ARDMORE, Okla. — Two adults from Seminole County and a 15-year-old boy have been arrested on child abuse charges after a violent video was posted on Instagram.
Konawa Chief of Police Joe Leeds says he's seen violent acts in his 12 years of police work, but nothing quite like this.
Not one, but two videos of what police say is a 15-year-old boy violently kicking an 8-year-old were posted on the older boy's Instagram page. Konowa police were notified of the videos by a DHS representative Thursday afternoon.
