A Jefferson City man has been charged with child abuse for an incident that occurred in July.

Cody Bradley, 22, is believed to have spanked a child under age 5 "harder than he should have," leaving welts and bruises on the child, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement.

The child was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Bradley reportedly told police the child had been throwing a fit and he lost his temper.
