EUGENE, Oregon -- An Oregon police officer was caught on camera slapping a 10-year-old boy in the head.
The officer said he did it because the boy bit him while he was trying to enforce a court order in a child custody dispute.
The child was told by his mother to run away from him – she recorded the incident.
“You do not hit an underage child,” said the child’s mother.
The officer said he was just doing his job.
