WRIGHTSVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- A dollar store employee has been arrested for simple battery after whipping a customer's child with a belt.

WMAZ-TV reports surveillance cameras inside a Wrightsville dollar store recorded an 8-year-old boy running around the store and eventually throwing a cookie jar at 39-year-old Emilia Graciela Bell.

Authorities say Bell took off her belt, chased the boy down and spanked him behind the counter.

The boy's father called police and Bell was taken into custody. Police said she was free on bond Friday.

Wrightsville is about 60 miles east of Macon.
