Gonzales man arrested in duct-tape binding of 15-month-old
GONZALES- A man accused of binding the wrists and ankles of his 15-month-old son with duct tape has been jailed, Gonzales Police report.
Police say he was taking care of the child while the boy's mother was at work.
David Williams III, 24, was booked with cruelty to a juvenile and held on $500,000 bond, according to jail records.
The boy's mother found the video, captioned "what to do with an unruly child," online in March and alerted the Department of Children and Family Services. The case was later sent to Gonzales Police, according to a news release.
The parents do not live together. The mother took the child back the same night the video was posted. She found abrasions and redness in the areas where the child had been taped.
Williams went to Gonzales Police Department Thursday and, after an interview, was arrested.
