Some crazy mom in Erie, Pennsylvania smacked her baby daddy upside the head with her 4-week-old baby, causing a skull fracture and some internal bleeding. On the baby, that is.
The Erie Times-News is on the story:
...[baby daddy Deangelo] Troop, 20, who also has a 1-year-old son with [Chytoria (ed.: wow)] Graham, 27, told the Erie Times-News on Monday that Graham is very upset about what happened and did not mean to hurt their child.Graham herself called 911. She has three older kids. The whole brood is staying at Grandma's, except the swingin' baby, who was airlifted to Pittsburgh and is in an induced coma at the moment.
"People are trying to make a big deal about it, but she did not do it on purpose," he said.
"It was just a mistake," he said.
According to the criminal complaint, Graham told police:
She had been out drinking Saturday and early Sunday. When she came home, she began arguing with Troop. The fight escalated to pushing and shoving. Graham then told police she "snapped" and began grabbing and throwing things at Troop.
She turned and grabbed the baby from the bed, where it was wrapped in a blanket.
She then swung the baby and hit Troop.
After Graham put the baby down, Troop punched her in the face and blackened her eye, police said. Her police photo later showed her left eye swollen shut.
Troop was not charged in connection with that injury.
