WRIGHTSVILLE, Ga. -

An 8-year-old boy spanked by a store clerk in Wrightsville says he was hit him so many times with a belt that it felt like he was being stuck with five needles.

Logan Ivey told WMAZ-TV that a store clerk called him a demon, and he said, "I'll show you a demon," and threw a cookie at her. He said the clerk took him behind a counter and hit him repeatedly with a belt, while he screamed for his mother.

Police Chief Paul Sterling said officers arrested the store clerk Thursday after a video showed her hitting the boy with a belt about 25 times. The boy's father, Jody Ivey, saw the video and called it more of a beating.

The clerk and the store manager declined comment.
