Georgetown police arrested 41-year-old Tammie Nava for child abuse and assault charges. She was arraigned Tuesday. Some that know her say it doesn't come as a surprise.

Court documents reveal Nava abused her children over a period of months. She allegedly hit them with a wooden dowel rod. In one instance, she reportedly instructed her son to slap her daughter because her daughter ate a banana.

All six children, ages 6 to 16, have now been removed from the home.
Police say this investigation is still ongoing and more charges are pending.
