Nice Shot. Shame About The Baby

HOUSTON — In a confrontation captured on videotape, a hospital security guard fired a stun gun to stop a

defiant father from taking home his newborn, sending both man and child crashing to the floor.

Now William Lewis says his baby girl suffers from head trauma because she was dropped.

"I've got to wonder what kind of moron would Tase an adult holding a baby," said George Kirkham, a former police officer and criminologist at Florida State University. "It doesn't take rocket science to realize the baby is going to fall."

Lewis, 30, said the April 13 episode began after he and his wife felt mistreated by staff at the Woman's Hospital of Texas and they decided to leave. Hospital employees told him doctors would not allow it, but Lewis picked up the baby and strode to a bank of elevators. more
