CHRISNEY — Indiana State Police arrested a Chrisney man this evening for allegedly abusing his 5-month old son.
Samuel Brinson, 22, 17 E. High St., Chrisney, is charged with a Class D felony count of battery causing injury to a child less than 14 years of age.
State police opened an investigation into possible child abuse on Sunday.
Authorities said Brinson was caring for his son early Sunday morning and became frustrated because of the child’s crying. Police allege Brinson squeezed the victim’s abdomen area too hard as he picked up his son, which caused significant bruising.
As the victim continued to cry out, police reported, Brinson purportedly bit the child’s ears, causing bruising.
Police said the victim was taken by his mother to Memorial Hospital in Jasper. She unknowingly believed the bruising might have been a rash, police said.
The young victim was transferred to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville to be further evaluated for internal injuries, according to authorities.
An arrest warrant for Brinson was issued today out of Spencer County Circuit Court. A trooper met the suspect in Ferdinand and placed him under arrest.
He was lodged in the Spencer County Jail.
