Jacob David Hartley, 20, told Polk County investigators he shook his 3-week-old son at least twice because the infant was crying, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
After playing his Xbox for several hours Hartley went to work at Sam’s Club, according to sheriff’s records. When he returned to his Lakeland home after work, Hartley again played video games until 4 a.m. Friday.
The baby’s mom prepared a bottle for the baby, Hartley held the boy on his chest, reports show. Hartley claimed he fell asleep and woke up a short time later to find Newton holding their son who was unresponsive.
WOW…COMMON SENSE ALERT: *IF YOU SHAKE A BABY OR ANY CHILD, THEY WILL CRY MORE* I HOPE SOMEONE SHAKES AND RATTLES HIS CAGE UNTIL HE CAN’T CRY!
