Dad arrested for choking 3-year-old son; boy has life-threatening brain injuries (Huntsville, Alabama)

Notice that Daddy didn't call 911 himself, but took the 3-year-old son to his aunt's house, who then rushed him to the emergency room.

Somehow I'm thinking MAURICE CARTWRIGHT is a single father who does not live with the mother, or else he would have contacted her. Custody/visitation situation?
