COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A 22-year-old soldier faces a child cruelty charge after police said his 11-day-old son was treated at an Army
hospital for multiple fractures.
Columbus police arrested Richard Seabridge Friday night after medical personnel summoned officers to Martin Army Hospital at Fort Benning. Detectives said Brayden Seabridge suffered fractures to his arm, leg and head.
Richard Seabridge told investigators he dropped the infant while playing a video game.
The toddler was transferred to Scottish Rite Hospital in Atlanta where he was listed in guarded condition.
Richard Seabridge posted a $5,000 bond Monday and was released from jail. He awaits a hearing in Superior Court.
