62 Year Old Man Arrested After Allegedly Spanking Stranger’s Child. NEWNAN, Ga. – A man was taken into custody after allegedly spanking a 2-year-old child in a grocery store checkout line. On Feb. 6, Newnan police arrested 62-year-old Juan Guvarra Martinez after he allegedly spanked a stranger’s child at a Newnan Kroger. The boy’s father, Logan Morris, said he was going through the checkout aisle with his 2-year-old son when the boy asked for candy. “I told him, ‘No, it’s too late bud,'” Morris said. That’s when, according to Morris, the man behind them in the line grabbed his son’s hand, spun him around and spanked him three times. “I didn’t know what to think,” Morris said. “I was blown away by the situation.” Morris said the man, identified as Martinez, told him, “That’s how we deal with kids in Mexico.” Morris said he replied, “We’re not in Mexico,” left the store and called police.
