Police: Infant on life support after dad punched him in the head

The baby son of Shomari Holmes and Chantelle Driver was hospitalized over the weekend with internal bleeding, police in Marietta said Monday.

Police told WGCL that Holmes confessed to the incident in a video recorded at the police department. He has charged with aggravated battery, simple battery and cruelty to children.

Holmes is also accused of hitting a 3-year-old girl repeatedly on her back and leg with a belt, and allegedly bit her on the forearm, according to reports.

Driver was also arrested and charged with cruelty to children and contributing to the deprivation of a minor after cops say she watched her fiance's alleged abuse and failed initially to seek medical care.
