Escambia County man accused of hitting toddler with baseball, toy car
ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) —
An Escambia County man has been charged with cruelty towards a child for allegedly hitting a child with different items.
In December 2017, a three-year-old was brought to a hospital with two black eyes and bruises on his face, head, and torso.
The report said the child was left in Albert Lee McClammy's care while his mother went to work. She discovered the injuries when she returned home.
According to the arrest report, the child first told deputies he was riding his scooter and ran into a car, but then changed the story and said the car ran into him.
A few days later, the child was taken to the Gulf Coast Kids House about the incident.
The report said the child told deputies McClammy hit the child with a baseball and pushed him while in his car seat, causing the right side of his head to hit the window. The report added McClammy also "hit him on the front of his face with a black toy car and put a rag in his mouth."
McClammy was released from the Escambia County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
