A Roane County man has been arrested after beating and injuring his 9-year-old grandson.

Officials at the child's school noticed the severe bruising and called Child Protective Services, who then notified the Sheriff's Department.

According to Sgt. Bo Williams with the Roane County Sheriff's Department, the child was living with 52-year-old Stanley Russel Vanduzer. The child's mother has a drug record and lives out-of-state. Vanduzer also has a drug record spanning several states.

"It's probably the worst I've seen in almost seven years," said Sgt. Williams.

The child was immediately taken and remains in CPS custody.

Vanduzer is being held in Central Regional Jail on $50,000 bond.
