HIGH SPRINGS, Fla., – Louis Bryan Bass, 19, was arrested yesterday and charged with aggravated child abuse and child neglect with great bodily harm after his 3-month-old son was transported to the emergency room with a brain bleed and a bruise on his torso.
First responders at the scene reported that they found the baby unresponsive and that he had signs of a traumatic brain injury.
Bass had been caring for the baby in the hours preceding the 911 call; when deputies told him that the injuries were consistent with shaking a baby, Bass reportedly said he was stressed and that the baby cried a lot, but he denied shaking him.
Bass is being held on $400,000 bail.
