A Florida jailer was arrested after being caught on surveillance tape slapping a handcuffed inmate, Fox13 reports.
Cpl. Leann Hindman, 47, was arrested and charged with battery on Tuesday. She is currently free on bond, but was also fired from her job with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
Video shows Hindman handcuffing a young woman at the Land O’ Lakes Jail, then forcing her into a chair. As a second female deputy approaches, Hindman can be seen slapping the woman across the face.
Hindman claimed the woman used profanity toward her and threw water at her. The detention officer claimed the woman had pinched her hand while she tried to handcuff her.
But the video disputes her story. The woman’s face was red after being slapped, WFLA reports.
Hindman told WFLA she was “devastated” by the discipline.

Trump aide Cuccinelli snaps after CNN’s Camerota shows him pictures of caged kids: ‘I’m not going to take that’
A CNN interview with acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli took a contentious turn on Friday morning after host Alisyn Camerota showed him pictures of immigrant children being held in cages and asked him why he would want to hold them even longer based upon a recent policy change he instituted.
As the CNN host pressed the Trump administration official on plans to hold children indefinitely, she put pictures of the kids in cages up on the screen which angered Cuccinelli.
"On one level it protects children, but it also exposes children to the overcrowding. Here's some of the roll we've been playing for months," she began, only to have the White House official cut her off.
Trump campaign official bizarrely compares president to Mother Teresa: ‘Who has done more for women?’
A former "Apprentice" contestant-turned-Iowa campaign official compared President Donald Trump to Mother Teresa.
Tana Goertz, the key primary state's Trump Team coordinator, claimed the president had done more for women than possibly anyone else in history than the sainted Calcutta nun, reported CBS News.
"There's not a person alive that literally has done so much for a female, for the female population," Goertz said. "I can't think of one person that I could go, except for Mother Teresa. I mean, literally, who has done more for women in office than Donald Trump?"
Goertz, a contestant on the third season of Trump's NBC reality show, said the president would boost the election chances of other Republicans running in next year's election, after last year's midterm losses for the GOP.
‘Manic, unhinged and unnerving’: MSNBC host warns that Trump’s erratic behavior has ‘crossed the threshold’
MSNBC guest host John Heilemann warned on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s behavior has been “manic, unhinged, and unnerving” in recent days — and some fear it will only get worse.
Heilemann was filling in for Nicolle Wallace on “Deadline: White House.”
He noted at the top of the show that Trump’s behavior has driven a consensus this week that he’s even less even-keeled than usual — which is saying a lot.
“The world is reeling and offering a collective judgment of O-M-G and W-T-F,” Heilmann said. He then played a clip of Trump’s bizarre, belligerent, and blatantly racist comments. He claimed that “no one can be trusted,” that Jews who vote for Democrats are “disloyal,” and that he is “the Chosen One.”
