A Johnston County father has been arrested and charged for allegedly using fishing line to sew up a wound on his son's head.

Sheriff Officials say the incident was brought to their attention on Feb. 2 by the Triangle Child Abuse Pediatric Services.

Avery allegedly hit his son over the head with a spoon, causing a 3-inch laceration, said Johnston County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Tammy Amaon. Avery then used fishing line to sew up the wound. The child was taken for treatment after the wound became infected.
