GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Authorities say a Goodyear man suspected of using a stun gun to discipline his 11-year-old son has pleaded guilty to child abuse.

They say Darryl Ingram pleaded on Friday and is scheduled to be sentenced on August 23.

Police say Ingram was arrested April 21 after his son told his school bus driver about the alleged abuse. School officials then reported it to police.
