Paula Geneva Echols of Tampa was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and battery after she allegedly punched the teenager -- who lived with her but is not a relative -- in the face and then threatened him with a baseball bat because he would not hand over the remote control, Tampa Bay Online reported Tuesday.
