Daycare Worker Arrested for Dragging Child Across Carpet

BRYANT, AR. -- A daycare worker has been arrested after police say she kicked and dragged an 8-month old boy across a carpet floor. Police were called to Wisdom Tree daycare Tuesday after a parent complained that her son had severe rug burns on his arms. Detectives say surveillance video shows Keyuanna Coats kicking the child and dragging him from one side of a room to another across a carpet floor.

"It's just really unfortunate that this child had to get hurt and for me as a owner to see it on the cameras and for that mom to have to endure what she did. I definitely apologize," wisdom tree owner, Artesia Stamps said. Coats faces a felony charge of endangering the welfare of a minor. The mother says her son is recovering from the burns and she has removed him from the daycare.
