http://www.heraldtribune.com/article...CLE/910159997/A 19-year-old man who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs about 250 pounds was arrested Tuesday and charged with child abuse after repeatedly hitting a 22-month-old child he was caring for, according to a Manatee County Sheriff's Office report.
Nathan Hurst was arrested around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at his residence. Hurst has been living with the child and the child's mother, who is his girlfriend, for the last several months, according to the report.
The report said Hurst told deputies that he hit the child in the face and spanked him repeatedly, delivering three to four blows during each spanking because the child would not stay in his room.
Deputies observed a hand-shaped bruise on the child's left cheek and eye area of his face, and saw bruises on his buttocks and leg.
Hurst told deputies he disciplined the child because he had friends over and the child was interrupting their video football game.
