I think this is the story the OP is talking about.
I have a feelign this child had a disability such as Autism or some other emotional problems--which were exacerbated by being slapped by one of the caretakers at the "Tender Teddies" home-based daycare center!

I agree with LoriKeet. I would prefer to read the whole story before giving my opinion on this particular situation.
I will say that under normal circumstances this would be unacceptable. That said, not being there and seeing the whole thing go down, I cannot say if it was excessive or not. The first thing I found on google was this from HuffPo:
It was the second time police had been called to the day care for an incident involving the boy, who was not identified.
It goes on to say: Assistant Police Chief Dan Riffel said neither officer had been disciplined previously before for excessive force.
