RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn.- A mid-state father accused of threatened to break his one-year-old child's neck in front of police faced a jury Tuesday morning.
Glenn Climer Junior was charged with attempted second degree murder charges in Rutherford County. Police said Climer brought his toddler into a Murfreesboro hospital last November, but when he refused to take the baby to the ER, Climer threatened to break the boy's neck, right in front of police.
Police said Climer placed his hands on the baby's head and neck. The actions caused officers to be concerned about the child's safety.
The boy was not seriously hurt and was placed in Department of Children's Service's custody.
Climer reached a plea deal.
