BARTLETT, TN (WMC) -

A father is furious after finding out that a Shelby County deputy allegedly rubbed his child's face in urine.

The incident happened over winter break when the kids were staying with their mother. The family had been potty training 2-year-old Reid and asked his siblings how it went over the break.

"They said that Reid had an accident, that his diaper leaked or whatever happened, but pee got on the carpet," said Mike Butler. "He grabbed the back of his neck and he forced him to the carpet and rubbed his face in the urine stained spot of the carpet much like you would train a dog. And I was just absolutely floored."

"He", they say, is Shelby County Sheriff Deputy Brian Hoard, the boyfriend of the child's mother. According to the police report, Butler's other children witnessed the incident and saw their mother argue with Hoard after the fact.

"To find out somebody that is not their parent has done something like this to your child. It's hard to hear," noted Butler.

WMC Action News 5 went by the mother's apartment where the incident allegedly occurred and found movers clearing the place. A man inside said Hoard wasn't home.

Meanwhile, Butler will wait for the investigation to run its course.

"If this somehow helps prevent this from happening to another kid, then awesome, something positive has come out of this negative situation," Butler said.

Hoard is on paid leave from the Shelby County Sheriff's Office pending the outcome of the investigation.
