A school bus camera captured a father shaking his young son because the child did not want to get on the bus last month.
The Carroll County Sheriff's Office cited Otis Collins, 55, of Carrollton, for assault after a video showed Collins grabbing the child by both arms and shaking him on Feb. 22, a sheriff's office release said.
Sheriff Jamie Kinman called Social Services after seeing the video. Police and the agency went to the school to see the child, the release said.
"The shaking left a visible injury to the left arm of the victim," Kinman said.
After visiting the school, officers and Social Services went to the Collins home, but the father was not home. A criminal summons was issued at that time, the release said.
