NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man has been charged with beating his baby son because he couldn’t stand the boy’s crying.

Police say Aaron Lamson was arrested after his 5-month-old son was taken to a New Haven children’s hospital on Tuesday with scratches, a black eye and bruising in the shape of a person’s hand.

Lamson faces charges of risk of injury to a minor and assault. His attorney said Thursday he can’t comment.

Police say Lamson told investigators he slapped his son with an open hand while waiting for the boy’s mother to get out of work in Shelton.

Police say Lamson said his son became fussy and wouldn’t stop crying.

Lamson was released on bail. His case was continued to May 31.
