TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A 25-year-old woman faces a child neglect charges after posting a photo on social media that showed her dangling a baby over an apartment balcony.
Friends of Aisha Jean Clark called Tampa police on Tuesday after spotting the photo on Instagram under her account handle.
The Tampa Bay Times ( http://bit.ly/14Fx6ut ) reports police asked the woman if she knew why they were at her apartment.
An arrest report said Clark showed officers the photo on her iPad. She told them she dangled the baby because she was "mad" and was "making a point." She also said she can do what she wants with her baby.
The woman and baby were wearing the same clothes as they were in the photo.
The woman remained in the Hillsborough County Jail Wednesday afternoon.
