JACKSON COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- A man accused of hitting his 18-month-old child over a video game appeared in court Monday.
Online court records show 21-year-old Christian Cloud made an initial appearance in Jackson County court for a charge of physical abuse of a child, intentionally causing great bodily harm.
The criminal complaint says Cloud eventually admitted to a captain with the Jackson County Sheriff's Department that while he was playing Xbox, his 18-month-old son started playing with the console, so cloud hit the boy.
He then told the captain that he forcefully picked him up and tossed him on to a couch.
Cloud also said he may have shaken the toddler, but didn't remember doing it.
