3 boot camp workers investigated for stun gun use
A West Texas police chief says three workers at a boot camp that disciplines children with stun guns and handcuffs are being investigated.
Abilene Police Chief Stan Standridge said Friday that no one has been arrested. The Taylor County District Attorney's Office is reviewing the case.
Standridge says five victims have been identified. He says drill sergeants reportedly used a stun gun on a 12-year-old boy who crawled too slowly during an exercise. He says a 4-year old was reportedly shocked with the device because he didn't obey his parent.
Paul Huntington, chief executive of Reality Invasion Boot Camp, has denied abuse allegations. He says drill sergeants used a stun gun on a teenage girl after she assaulted them.
Many parents say they support the camp's discipline methods.
