A man accused of hitting a three-year-old child appeared in court on Saturday.
Dillonne Tuttle faces a child abuse charge.
Tuttle became upset with the child for soiling his pants.
An officer says security video, obtained from underground parking at Sandia Casino, shows Tuttle walking around his car, striking the child with a closed fist and aggressively throwing him to the ground.
Tuttle says he tried to clean the boy, but the child was not cooperating.
He says he only slapped the child’s leg.
