CLARK COUNTY — Prosecutors in Clark County are continuing to evaluate possible charges in connection to a social media post showing a man kneeling on the neck of a toddler.

The photo got the attention of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office last week and they arrested Isaiah Jackson, who they identified as the man in the photo. Jackson was arrested on a parole violation and Clark County Prosecutor David Driscoll said his office has 15 days from his arrest to approve any charges in the case, before he could be released.

Driscoll said detectives met with the prosecutor’s office Monday, but so far no charges have been approved. The Prosecutor said he wants to make sure that they take their time and get any charges in the case right.

Deputies said an investigation was launched last Tuesday after they were made aware of the photo, which shows a man with his knee on the back of a child’s neck. The child appears to be crying in the photo while a second person holds the child’s hands behind their back. The photo’s caption read “Blm now.”

Investigators made contact with the child, their mother, and Jackson. The child was transported to an area hospital for examination, however they did not suffer any injuries from the incident deputies said.

“Subsequent interview with the mother revealed that she was unaware of the photo having been taken, or its contents, until she had been informed by other parties,” Clark County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Kristopher Shultz said.
