    Police say SF man hogtied 5-year-old son

    SANTA FE  (AP) — Police in Santa Fe say they arrested a man on a child abuse charge after the uncle of the man’s 5-year-old son found the boy hogtied in a bathroom.
    A police probable cause statement obtained by the Santa Fe New Mexican says the uncle told officers he confronted 28-year-old Damon Gardner after finding the boy Thursday morning. The report says Gardner told the uncle he tied up his son because he didn’t believe in spanking and needed to punish the boy for acting out.
    The uncle and Gardner ended up in a fight and another person in the home called police.
    Gardner’s wife told the responding officer that she saw her son lying face down on the bathroom floor tied up.
    It isn’t clear if Gardner has a lawyer.
