(BATAVIA, NY) WKBW - A Genesee County Court judge sentenced 28-year-old Christopher Cummings to 180 days in jail on Tuesday. Back in May, Cummings slammed his 7-year-old son to the ground at the Batavia Wal-Mart. Shoppers at Wal-Mart told police they heard Cummings shouting at the boy, then saw him pick the boy up over his head and throw him to the floor. The incident was caught on surveillance video. Cummings later admitted to police that he needs help for his anger management problem. The boy wasn't seriously hurt and he has an order of protection in place against his father.
