Two Florida women were arrested last week after bystanders witnessed them throwing a baby around outside of a bar in Daytona.
19-year-old Brianna Lafoe and 20-year-old Sierrah Newell were arrested outside the Coyote Ugly Saloon at around 1 a.m. last Thursday.
According to the Daytona police, the women were spotted swinging a baby around by his arms and legs and even tossing him back and forth in the air over 4 feet.
A witness confronted Lafoe and Newell, pleading with them to stop handling the baby that way. An innocent bystander began recording the incident on their phone. At this time, Lafoe, who was holding the baby upside down by its’ legs, struck the woman recording the footage.
When authorities arrived at the scene, Lafoe and Newell were arrested and taken to the Volusia County Jail.
The baby was taken to the hospital with red marks on his back and a possible broken arm.
In addition to the felony child abuse charge, Lafoe was also charged with battery.
The relationship between the baby and the two women has not been disclosed at this time.
