A Boone County mother was arrested after deputies said her children were found with bruises, scratches and at least one bite mark, injuries they said were caused by the mother.
Tabitha Harper, 28, of Bloomingrose is charged with felony child abuse, according to a news release from the Boone County Sheriff’s Office. She was being arraigned in Boone County Magistrate Court.
Deputies received a complaint from Child Protective Services regarding Harper’s four children 9 years old and under.
When they arrived at the residence, deputies knocked on the front door, and Harper fled out the rear door on foot, the release said. Deputies said she ran into a wooded area attempting to evade officers, but was taken into custody a short distance later.
Deputies said the allegations also include drug use in front of the children.
