BRYANT, AR - One day after arresting a daycare worker for dragging a child across a carpet, Bryant Police release video of the incident.

Keyuanna Coats was arrested at the Wisdom Tree Learning Center Tuesday afternoon and charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.

Officers were called to the facility after the 8-month-old boy's mother said she noticed carpet burns on her son the night before after picking him up from the center.
Police say Coats admitted to investigators that she had dragged the boy across the carpeted floor twice.

In one of the two short videos attached here, she is seen kicking the child's arm away from what appears to be a trash bag before dragging him to the other side of the room.

The worker said she never intended to cause harm to the child, who kept getting into an area where cleaning supplies were stored.
