KENNER, La. — Good news never lasts long around here. Police have arrested a man after they say he got so aggravated with his 3-month-old baby, that he slammed the infant against a wall, likely causing permanent neurological defects.
Tyler Jonathan Eastgate, 22, said he found his son found his son in his room having trouble breathing, seizing and losing consciousness.
But doctor’s determined the infant’s injuries were the result of blunt force trauma from having been thrown down and contacted police.
The baby had bleeding on the brain, bruises to his cheek, chin and chest, as well as several scratches and bruises to his neck in the shape of a hand.
Presented with this information, Eastgate finally admitted to police that while babysitting his son, he lost it when the boy would not stop crying.
First he threw the baby against the wall, causing him to strike his head. Not surprisingly, since babies usually don’t like being thrown into hard surfaces, the boy cried even more. So Eastgate said he struck his son in the face before throwing him into his crib, causing the boy to hit his head a second time.
On top of this, Eastgate also admitted he dropped the kid on his head on a previous occasion, but that one was purely an accident. (*makes dismissive wanking motion*)
Eastgate was arrested and charged with second-degree cruelty to a juvenile. His son, according to investigators, will likely have permanent neurological defects because of what his dad did to him.Tags: Child Abuse, Crime, Louisiana, Tyler Eastgate, wall
