A Georgia childcare worker has been fired and charged after she reportedly slammed a 16-month-old baby into a mat at the center.
Jonee Nicole Hamilton, 20, was fired by the facility after the Nov. 28 incident.
Police are investigating after they got a report that an employee of the center had taken a 16-month-old child and “shoved their head into a mat” because the child failed to go to sleep.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, “Hamilton then picked up the child and slammed (the child) with force onto the mat, causing a laceration on the inside of the lip. This caused a bleeding injury which bloodied the child’s shirt.”
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Hamilton was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault and child cruelty.
She was reportedly in the Cobb County Jail without bond Wednesday.
