Mad at video game, man 'assaults' baby

Faces two charges of first-degree assault. (Facebook)


Police in Newport, New Hampshire, say a man has been accused of shaking his 3-month-old son twice, allegedly out of aggression toward a video game system.

Jerry Carrier faces two charges of first-degree assault and was to be arraigned Tuesday. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.

WMUR-TV reports police said the baby was taken from Newport to a hospital in January. Two weeks later, police said they responded to a similar incident in Charlestown; this time, the child was found unresponsive. His injuries were found to be from non-accidental trauma.

The baby is in state custody.

Police said the 26-year-old Carrier told them he shook the baby twice out of aggression toward a video game system.
