Delmer Doss, 19, and his girlfriend Amber Burgess, 19, have their own alleged version of family videos of their 11-month old baby. Police say that the couple blindfolded their 11-month-old son and then recorded the child bumping into walls with a video camera.
What is particularly horrific is that babies at this age are still prone to dangerous head injuries. The couple had him run between them while blindfolded. At one point, the baby came close to colliding with a door.
A mother who was shown the video reported it to the police.
They are now both charged with misdemeanor child abuse and were released on unsecured bonds. Both also face other charges. Doss was arrested for shoplifting and consuming alcohol while under the age of 21 and Burgess faces charges of possessing a controlled substance in jail, possession of drug paraphernalia and consuming alcohol while under the age of 21. While some cities are contemplating a test for people to own dogs or cats like a driver’s license, this couple shows that anyone can have a baby.
