An arrest in a child abuse investigation was made Tuesday morning in Eastview.
Troopers with Kentucky State Police Post 4 responded to a residence on Sonora Hardin Springs Road, and met with the 15-year old victim. The victim claimed that he and his father, Louis Hart, got into a verbal altercation. Allegedly, Hart ran towards his son and struck him in the face, then pushed him against the wall, striking him again. The victim is reported to have had swelling to the side of his face, as well as a bloody nose. Hart explained that his actions were the result of his son talking back to him.
A sibling, an 11-year old girl, claimed she heard the initial strike, but did not hear the shove against the wall. Hart was lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center.
