arrested. The Taylor County District Attorney's Office is reviewing the case.
Standridge says five victims have been identified. He says drill sergeants
reportedly used a stun gun on a 12-year-old boy who crawled too slowly during an
exercise. He says a 4-year old was reportedly shocked with the device because he
didn't obey his parent.

abuse allegations. He says drill sergeants used a stun gun on a teenage girl
after she assaulted them.
Many parents say they support the camp's discipline methods.
