Nashville, Tennessee, police arrested a woman accused of assaulting a toddler she was baby-sitting.

According to police, 24-year-old Briana Campbell was recorded during a three-hour period on July 31 on a home security camera.

The video allegedly shows her abusing the 13-month-old boy she was baby-sitting. She is seen in the video apparently throwing the boy on the couch, smothering him with pillows, repeatedly striking him in the head and body, and carrying him upside down by the ankles. 

The child was taken for an examination and, fortunately, did not suffer any serious physical injuries.

Campbell has been charged with two counts of aggravated child neglect and nine counts of aggravated child abuse and is being held on a $250,000 bail.
