A Phoenix man is arrested for allegedly shaking his 7-week-old son.

On Sunday, the mom leaves the baby in Guadalupe Gonzales' care. He originally tells police he takes a Percocet and lays down on the sofa with the baby on the floor below. The man says he wakes up after falling off the sofa and landing on the infant. 

The father also claims the baby falls a few inches when he gives him a shower afterwards. He later recants his story and tells police his son wouldn't stop crying so he shakes him about fifteen times.

Gonzales is being charges with child abuse -- a class 2 felony. The child is in extremely critical condition.
