PFLUGERVILLE, Texas -- A mother has been charged with Injury to a Child after a police investigation found she used a stun gun on her 14-year-old son.
Kimira Hysaw, 32, was arrested by Pflugerville police and charged with the third degree felony.
An arrest affidavit states that the investigation began on Feb. 25, after Pflugerville police received a report from Child Protective Services. Police were told that a four-year-old student named "K" told her teacher that her 14-year-old brother "D" got in trouble and had been "tased" four times by their mother.
When interviewed by police at school a few days later, "K" told an officer that her father helped to hold "D" down while their mom shocked him with a pink stun gun that she keeps in her purse. "K" told police that the incident occurred after her brother went to play basketball without permission. She told police that "D" made noises "like he was hurting."
Officers then interviewed another sibling, eight-year-old "J." He also confirmed that "D" gets "tased" by their mother with a pink stun gun when he gets in trouble.
When police found "D" and asked about the incident, he did not want to speak to them. He admitted that his mother owns a stun gun and showed officers marks on his body which were consistent with what his siblings told police.
On March 1, police called Hysaw. Officers say she admitted to owning a stun gun, but said she did not want to meet with police. The officer who spoke to her said she was resistant and blamed her children over the phone before hanging up on the officer.
The arrest affidavit states that Hysaw "did intentionally and knowingly cause bodily injury to a child 14 years of age or younger, a Third Degree Felony."
Hysaw's bond has been set at $50,000.
