Dad TIMOTHY HOLLOWAY: the latest sperm donor who should have never been allowed anywhere near an infant. Once again, we have a "frustrated" deadbeat (with a criminal record no less) who was "caring" for a baby while Mom had to work to support his lazy @$$.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City father is arrested in connection with the alleged abuse of his infant daughter. The baby is only four months old. The father, Timothy Holloway, is only 18 years old.
According to court records, Holloway was caring for his daughter earlier this month at their southwest metro apartment while the child's mother was at work.
The baby ended up at Children's Hospital with bruises on her body as well as a skull fracture and a brain bleed.
Orlando Brown Holloway claimed he accidentally dropped her.
But she also had retinal hemorrhages in both eyes, which doctors say, is common with children who have been shaken.
Court records state, "Holloway later confessed that he did violently shake (his daughter) out of frustration after he dropped her because (his daughter) was screaming at him like he dropped her on purpose."
Neighbors say they've heard vicious arguments coming from that apartment.
"I never thought he would mess with no baby," said Orlando Brown, "But I knew him and her had problems and if he done it, then he needs to be taken care of."
"There's been fighting going on, complaints about them two," said Thomas Metzger. "It sounds like they're bowling upstairs."
Holloway also has several warrants for failure to appear in court for charges ranging from larceny to possession of marijuana.
Tonight, he's being held at the Oklahoma County jail, charged with child abuse.
