A Hollywood man was released from custody Friday on 10 percent of $3,500 bond after his arrest on charging papers alleging he smashed a window of a car, causing glass to cover a child seat where a boy was sitting.
St. Mary's sheriff's deputies report that the destruction of the rear window of the suspect's vehicle shattered glass over the 1-year-old child.
Philip A. Stamey, 31, was charged with second-degree child abuse and reckless endangerment following investigation of the Thursday night incident on Mervell Dean Road.
The suspect, his wife and two children were traveling on the roadway when they stopped and an argument between the adults ensued outside the vehicle, before the suspect allegedly broke the window, according to charging papers filed by sheriff's deputy J.E. Maletto.
