No Father Of The Year Awards For Two Battle Creek Dads

Mon January 25, 2010 3 hours, 23 minutes ago

A couple of Battle Creek dads are facing criminal charges and possibly even jail time for not being very good fathers. A 25 year old has been arrested for aggravated child abuse after showing up at the Emergency room at Battle Cree Health Systems with his 5 month old suffering from what appeared to be shaken baby syndrome. The baby has since been transferred to Bronson’s Pediatric Trauma Unit, where it was put on a respirator. The man claimed the infant had choked while feeding.

Meanwhile, a 24 year old man who left his one year old in his car Friday afternoon for over an hour near Territorial Road while he shopped for video games has been arrested on a child abuse charge. A shop owner called after seeing the infant in the car in the cold.
