A Jefferson County man who is currently on parole was arrested Sunday after he allegedly injured his infant daughter at a house in the Dollarway area.
Brandon Phillips, 27, allegedly picked up the girl and was swinging her around when her head hit a table, Pine Bluff Police Department Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable cause affidavit presented in district court Wednesday.
According to the affidavit, Phillips had gone to the house where he allegedly assaulted the husband of the child’s mother before picking up the girl, and the mother of the child told police she “believed Phillips was high.”
Rucker reported that Phillips contacted police and later turned himself in, and it was an accident when the child’s head hit the table.
Records at the prosecutor’s office showed that Phillips had a prior conviction for domestic battery.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $25,000 cash only bond for Phillips after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge him with second-degree domestic battery.
Phillips was ordered to have no contact with the child until the case is settled.
