Louisiana Mother Heidy Rios Charged For Throwing Baby At Father's Feet

Rios of Canteel Court in Terrytown Louisiana, was arrested on Friday but initially denied any wrongdoing

Rios is now at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center and is charged with cruelty to a juvenile.

Heidi Rios, 24, allegedly tossed the tot after she swore at the dad - fracturing the child's skull.

He was taken to hospital by his father and treated for a fracture on his right temporal bone but his injuries are not considered life-threatening. The infant's father told officers he had been arguing with Rios when she threw the baby at his feet. The infant's father, who remains unidentified, told detectives Rios grabbed their son during the fight, threw the baby at his feet and said, "Take your f**king son".

After a "neutral" witness came forward claiming that Rios actually held the newborn at the time of the dispute, Rios said she "may have dropped" the infant while the fight took place.

Rios, of the 100 block of Caneel Court, Terrytown, was booked into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna. The woman, identified as 23-year-old Brittany Robinson, of Shenango, Lawrence County, told investigators she was unaware that she was pregnant until she gave birth to the baby Friday in a bathtub.

Deputies did not have an update on the condition of the infant.

A Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office arrest report says Rios was arrested Friday and charged with cruelty to a juvenile.
