Florida Woman Who Instagramed Pic of Baby Dangling Off Balcony Arrested

Aisha Jean Clark apparently comes from the Michael Jackson school of baby rearing. The Tampa woman was arrested on charges of child neglect after she put a photo of herself dangling a baby boy over a balcony that was 12 feet off the ground on Instagram.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, a friend saw the photo after she posted it to her Instagram account, RatMove13 (it's set to private), and contacted Tampa police on Tuesday. The photo showed Clark dangling the young child by his right arm over the balcony.

Police arrived later that day and found both Clark and the child in the same clothes as the photo. Clark laughed when police asked her why she thought they were they. She even showed the photo to police on her iPad.

"I was mad and I was making a point," Clark said. "I can do what I want with my baby. Nobody can stop me."

The officers thought that the incident was no laughing matter and did stop Clark.

They arrested her on a child neglect charges.
