Two northern Arizona parents were arrested after photos of their young children allegedly being abused were posted on Facebook.
An anonymous Facebook user reportedly alerted authorities on Wednesday after seeing two children, an infant and a toddler, bound with duct tape around their wrists and ankles in photos posted to the social networking site.
In the photos, the 2-year-old and 10-month-old are allegedly bound with duct tape around their wrists and ankles. Their mouths were also closed shut with duct tape. Police said one of the children was hung upside down on an exercise apparatus.
Jayla Hamm, who was 17 at the time of the abuse, received 10 days in jail and two years probation. Her boyfriend, Corde Honea, 19, an ex-convict, was sentenced to three to five years for child abuse and received an additional 12 to 24 months on felony possession of stolen firearms.
A Shorewood resident told police that her mother had entered her home and fed her cat while she was away. She wanted her mother charged with a crime.
In Nashville, Steve McNair of the Tennessee Titans was charged with DUI an possession of a firearm under the influence in May 2003. Police stopped the 30-year-old McNair after spotting his 1999 Lincoln Navigator weaving erratically in downtown Nashville. The quarterback's Breathalyzer indicated.18--nearly twice the state's .10 blood alcohol limit. Police also found a 9 mm pistol in McNair's SUV; although McNair held a valid permit to carry the pistol, Tennessee law makes it illegal to possess a firearm while under the influence.
