Mother Arrested In Scalding of Son
A Battle Creek woman faces charges after her 12-year-old son says he was scalded with a hot liquid.
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that the boy was treated at Bronson Battle Creek for burns to his chest.
His 40-year-old mother was arrested Tuesday at work, but told police that she didn't burn her son. She is charged with aggravated felonious assault.
The boy's father lives in Memphis, Tennessee, and called 911 Monday afternoon after receiving a cellphone video of the injuries from his son.
A 14-year-old brother told police he didn't see hot liquid poured on his brother and that the normal punishment would be taking away cell phone privileges and being sent to their bedroom.
The boys are now in the custody of their grandmother.
