Baton Rouge man arrested for beating child at elementary school
BATON ROUGE- A man arrested Friday has been accused of beating his child at an elementary school after the child was suspended.
Edward T. Humphrey, 38, was booked with cruelty to juveniles, booking records show.
On Nov. 8th, Humphrey was called to Claiborne Elementary School to pick up his son who was being suspended. According to the warrant, the child's father took him into the teacher's lounge and disciplined him with a belt.
Authorities say Humphrey dropped the child off to the mother the following morning. She called police after seeing severe bruising on the child's face, hands, and back.
The child was transported to Our Lady of the Lake Hospital, where he told authorities that his father often disciplines him, but he'd "never been this extreme" or caused this much pain.
Police obtained a warrant for Humphrey. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Friday and charged with cruelty to juveniles.
