A Florida man is under investigation by the state's Department of Child Protective Services and law enforcement after a video circulated online of the man allegedly pushing his son down a skateboard ramp.
The video allegedly shows Marcus Crossland kicking his 6-year-old son down a ramp at Kona Skate Park in Arlington, Fla., reports First Coast News in Jacksonville, Fla.
"We certainly share people's concerns about this incident. Totally unacceptable," said John Harrell, spokesman for the Department of Child Protective Service's northeast Florida office, in an interview with USA TODAY.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office confirmed it is investigating the incident, according to an e-mail to the USA TODAY Network.
Crossland told First Coast News that the sheriff's office wanted to speak to him but declined further comment.
Harrell said he could not disclose what the Department of Child Protective Services investigation has found but said in general, the department interviews parents, children and people who know the family.
According to Florida statute, abuse is defined as an intentional act that results in physical, mental or sexual abuse, injury or harm.
