Police learned of the incident after responding to the home on a well-being check. And, according to one source, the child was still in the dryer when deputies entered the home. Another source, though, claims Bayly admitted to having placed the kid in the dryer earlier that day. Either way, the kid was supposedly tumbled at some point.
No word on how long the kid was fluffed, but police were unable to find any visible injuries. Police say the toddler was released to his mother, who wasn’t home when deputies arrived.
Bayly was arrested on a misdemeanor child endangerment charge and quickly bonded out, but was immediately rearrested on a felony domestic violence charge. He was apparently convicted on similar charges back in 1999, after assaulting a 5-year-old family member.

But I do it for one simple reason and it is that I have hope every child abuse story we do may open the eyes to some blinded parents out there and help save another child from enduring more cruelty and pain. Today’s child-abusing piece-of-shit is 30-year old Eric Zawadzki. Police believe this fuck-tard brutally beat his girlfriend’s 5-year old daughter on Monday after her mother left her in his care for a few hours. The child told authorities that Zawadzki picked her up by the neck, beat and choked her, and then put her in the clothes dryer during the assault and manually spun the dryer while she was inside. He then secured the dryer door shut and refused to let her out. The girl’s mother called police on Tuesday morning. Yeah. You read that correctly. The bitch waited until the next day to get help for her child.…Continue Reading
