A Florida business’s surveillance video showed a confrontation ensuing after two women allegedly tossed a baby around “like a toy” while they were drunk.
Sierrah Newell, 20, and Brianna Lafoe, 19, were both arrested and charged with child abuse in relation to an incident on Sept. 14 at the Coyote Ugly bar in Daytona Beach. An arrest affidavit states that officers received reports of two women throwing a child back and forth while standing four feet apart.
The report added that the women turned the child upside down as well.
A witness also said Lafoe threatened to hit her, then allegedly flipped the baby and turned him upside down by the ankles.
