Po­lice: Day care worker body-slammed tod­dler

Ledger-Enquirer - - News -

Po­lice in Ge­or­gia say a day care worker bodys­lammed a tod­dler, blood­y­ing the 16-month-old’s lip and shirt.

News out­lets re­ported 20-year-old Jonee Ni­cole Hamil­ton was ar­rested Tues­day on charges in­clud­ing child cru­elty and ag­gra­vated as­sault. Smryna po­lice said the Ox­ford Ba­bies worker was upset last week when the child re­fused to nap and so shoved the tod­dler’s head into a floor mat.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, Hamil­ton then picked the child up and slammed them into the mat, bust­ing the child’s lip. Of­fi­cer Heather Knight said the child was treated at a hospi­tal.

Hamil­ton passed a back­ground check when she was hired in Septem­ber. She has since been fired.

Knight said po­lice are re­view­ing the day care’s sur­veil­lance videos.
