An infant was injured by a Taser Friday evening at a northwest Oklahoma City apartment complex when a bounty hunter tried to serve an arrest warrant, Oklahoma City police said. The baby’s mother was arrested for child endangerment after she allegedly used the child as a shield when the Taser was fired, according to police.

Additionally, it looks increasingly like airports are not safe for the public.
