Midland Man Accused of Slapping Child While Intoxicated

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - Midland Police arrested a man who they say put his hands on a child while he was drunk.

Issac Loya is charged with injury to a child.

According to the arrest affidavit, Loya slapped his seven-year-old stepson because the child didn't like the pork chops he made.

The child told investigators Loya slaps him a lot and it happens when he's drunk and his mom is at work.

The report says Loya even told the child if he told anyone about what happened, he would be placed back in foster care.

Investigators say Loya denied ever touching the boy, but then admitted to the crime later.
