A California lawmaker who was arrested on suspicion of child cruelty says the allegation stemmed from spanking his seven-year-old daughter.
Democratic Assemblyman Joaquin Arambula said he spanked his daughter on Sunday night because she was acting up.
Arambula said he believed his daughter went to school angry the following morning and told a teacher about what had happened.
He was arrested on Monday after officials at Dailey Elementary Charter School noticed an injury on the child and reported it to authorities.
