Cincinnati Enquirer: An East Price Hill father beat his 6-year-old son for playing a video game poorly, Cincinnati police say.
Terry Taulbee, 50, was held Tuesday on a domestic violence charge at the Hamilton County jail.
Taulbee is accused of hitting the boy on his lower back and buttocks, leaving a large red hand mark, court records state. The area swelled and caused pain for the child.
The victim's mother told police Taulbee became upset when the boy didn't play a video game well.
The boy is with his mother, while Taulbee has been put under a safety plan which forbids him from having contact, said Brian Gregg, a spokesman for the Hamilton County Job and Family Services.
"We are investigating these allegations and looking into it, whether everyone is safe and healthy," he said.
The safety plan will continue until Family Services makes sure everything is OK in the home, Gregg said.
"It is going to take some time to investigate and see what kinds of services are needed for the family," he said.
