KENNER, La.  —

A Louisiana man is charged with battery and cruelty to a juvenile after police say he used a stun gun on a 7-year-old as he chased several children around his neighborhood.

Kevin Alexis, 19, of Kenner, admitted to grabbing the stun gun from the kitchen windowsill of his home and “playing around” with several children, but he denied touching any of them with the weapon, according to a Kenner Police Department news release. He did admit that he turned the stun gun on to scare the children, police said.

The incident came to light Friday night when the mother of the 7-year-old boy saw blisters and burns on her son’s back, the news release said. The boy told his mother that that Alexis had chased him and the other children.

The boy said Alexis turned the weapon on and touched the electrical current flowing between its metal prongs to his back, police officials said.

According to security website ASecureLife.com, most Taser brand stun guns deliver 50,000 volts of electricity. Others are much more powerful, including the Vipertek VTS-989, which delivers 53 million volts, the website said. 

It was not immediately clear how powerful Alexis’ stun gun was. 

Alexis was booked into the Jefferson Parish Detention Center, where he remained on Tuesday in lieu of $50,000 bail.
