In his arrest warrant, Woodstock police say Guerra shook the child, picked him up and “forcefully threw him into the couch pillows” after the child spilled a container of salt. Guerra is also charged with grabbing the 2-year-old by the shoulder, leaving a red mark.

Authorities say the incident was captured on a security camera in the home, which is in the King’s Gate subdivision off Trickum Road in Woodstock.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Guerra remained in the Cherokee County jail without bond.
