Pinetops father in jail for slamming baby into bed

Posted: Updated:
PINETOPS, N.C. - Edgecombe County deputies arrested a 21-year-old father after they say he slammed his two week old child on a bed causing the baby's brain to bleed.

On Saturday, the baby was rushed to the emergency room after becoming "unresponsive". The baby had multiple bruises on the face and neck and internal brain bleeding.

Deputies say the violent act came after Michael Banks got mad at the baby's mother.

Banks faces attempted first degree murder and child abuse charges. He is being held in the Edgecombe County Detention Center under an $885,000 secured bond.
