ABILENE, Texas (AP) — A West Texas boot camp that disciplines children with stun guns and handcuffs is being investigated on assault allegations.

Abilene Police Chief Stan Standridge is to discuss the investigation Friday afternoon. Earlier this week he said a local boot camp allegedly assaulted children as young as 4 years old, but no one had been charged.

Paul Huntington, chief executive of Reality Invasion Boot Camp, denies the allegations. He says drill sergeants used a stun gun on a teenage girl who assaulted them during a home visit recently. He says the mother had hired them for her three children, who were ordered to complete chores.

Huntington says parents must sign waivers allowing the staff to use handcuffs and stun guns. He says those methods are used only under extreme circumstances.
