Boone County Sheriff's deputies arrested Dusty Hessenkemper after she burned her 14-year-old daughter with the lighter in response to her daughter wanting to get a tattoo. The 34-year-old mom thought the burning would simulate a tattooing and make the daughter think twice about getting one. She was arrested for child abuse and was released from jail on a $4,500 bond.
