Richard Marsh, the boy’s father (pictured), and Paul Rapp were arrested in Salt Lake City on child abuse and drug possession charges.

The child was dragged across a highway, up over a curb and along 20 feet of landscaped bark, before being tethered to a tree, horrified witnesses told police on 911 calls…

The boy suffered minor injuries including road rash after being trailed along by his backpack harness, and is now in the care of his mother.
