OGDEN — A 24-year-old Ogden man is in the Weber County Jail after police say he beat a 2-year-old, breaking his arm in the process.

Justin David Tucker was arrested Wednesday after reportedly admitting to Ogden police he had also beaten the boy on his neck, back and face. Tucker allegedly said he grabbed the boy by the arm and threw him to the ground at least two times.

Tucker is charged with child abuse, inflicting serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony. He made his initial court appearance Friday morning.

A woman called police after finding extensive bruising on the boy. Tucker was the only adult present with the boy when he was beaten, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case.

"(Tucker) stated that he blacked out and cannot remember if he did anything else," the affidavit states.
