Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - A man has been arrested for spanking a child with an extension cord.

Derrick Williams was arrested Tuesday on a charge of cruelty to a juvenile after he admitted to using the cord on his 5 year old stepson.

Police first got wind of the incident when the child went to school and staff saw his leg was swollen and he had cuts from the spanking.

Police asked the child how he got the injuries and the child said he was spanked because he did not do the dishes.

Williams initially denied he spanked the boy, but then said the boy cussed him out.

Williams remains in jail on a $7500 bond.
