A California water agency director has resigned his elected office several days after a neighbor posted online video that shows the official apparently hitting his stepson with a belt for dropping a baseball during a game of backyard catch.
The neighbor turned in the video to sheriff's investigators last week, and Anthony Sanchez was arrested on Friday on suspicion of felony child abuse.
The Imperial Valley Press reports (http://bit.ly/KtQ34Q) that Sanchez's lawyer said Saturday that Sanchez has quit his post with the Imperial Irrigation District that oversees water and electricity supply and distribution in the Imperial and Coachella valleys.
Ryan Childers says no charges have been filed against his client and the facts of the case will emerge during the sheriff's inquiry.
Sanchez was elected to the board in 2006 to represent Calexico and other cities.
