PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — A Pasco County woman is in jail after a video was sent into Pasco County Sheriffs showing abuse towards a child.

A police report states Jenna Leigh Johns, 28, can be seen punching a child in the face and stomach multiple times.

Police reached out to the victim who was five years old and told police when Johns drinks alcohol; she gets physical with him.

When questions, Johns says, she blacked out and did not remember the incident. She then remembered what happened and said the child was misbehaving, and she did not hit him.

Johns was arrested and charged with child abuse.
