A man was arrested Wednesday on child abuse charges after Sheriff's deputies said he whipped a 6-year-old boy with a hose and dropped him head-first on the ground and injured a 4-year-old boy, said a spokesman for the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

Jaccob Billiter, 34, had been living with his 23-year-old girlfriend in a camper in the 24000 block of N. Highway 89 in Paulden, where deputies were called July 10.

They found the two boys, the older one with a "significant injury to his head and dried blood on his face," said spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn. Deputies were told he had been held upside-down while being whipped with a hose as punishment for drinking out of the irrigation system. He had welts on his back from the hose, and the head injury apparently happened as a result of the child being dropped head-first, D'Evelyn said.

The younger child "had a visible injury on his forehead resulting from punishment by Billiter," D'Evelyn said.

Paramedics took the boys to a hospital for treatment.

The following day, deputies - who had been told Billiter had run as they were arriving - found him at a nearby friend's home and arrested him. He was booked on two counts of child abuse, aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, and two counts of neglect or abuse of a minor.

He is being held on a $10,000 bond and the children are in protective custody.

Its a good thing he didnt have any pot on him or he would have really gotten into trouble. Abusing two little kids looks bad but he will probable do a couple of months and the rest will be unsupervised probation.
