An employe at a Dollar General store in Georgia was arrested last week after reportedly spanking an 8-year-old customer with a belt. According to 11Alive, she has been charged with aggravated assault after video indicated she whipped the boy roughly 25 times.
Now, young Logan Ivey is giving his version of events.
"It's just heartbreaking me that it happened two days before my own birthday," the boy began solemnly in an extremely thick southern accent. "It's just...I don't like it."
When asked how the altercation began, Logan explained for 13WMAZ:
So I walked down this aisle and I seen the lady. She started calling me a demon, so I said, 'I'll show you bad,' and I picked up a cookie and I threw it at her...
I tried to hide behind the counter, and somehow she found me and started whipping me and I didn't have nowhere to go...
I felt like I had five needles sticking in me, man. It really hurt; I was screaming 'Mama...'
Logan's father Jody, who saw the video, added: "It wasn't a spanking, it was more or less a beating than a spanking the way she was hitting him. I don't know how to explain it and I don't want to think about it."
Ivey said his son is just like any other boy. He likes to play and, while you need to discipline him every once in a while, "he don't deserve to be beat with no belt like that by nobody else."
"It felt real, real painful," Logan concluded. "Nobody should have that kind of torture."
