Dad JESSE CLAUS has been charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child after he "slapped" his 5-month-old son. I'm guessing this baby must have done something truly terrible--like squirming while Daddy was trying to change his diapers. Given that the baby appeared to be "out of it," seems Daddy inflicted a little brain damage with his "slap." What an @$$wipe.
