A 1-Year-Old baby Gets Concussion For Apparently "Staring" at 36-Year-Old
Ever been on an airplane, and have the misfortune of being seated next to crying baby? Sure, it sucks, but most of us in civilized society deal with the annoyance, and move on with our lives, because we know that a baby doesn't know better.
What if you're just walking down the street, and a baby walking with her mother has the audacity to "stare" at you?
That type of reckless eyeballing, police say, was grounds for a Mesa woman to attack a woman walking with her two daughters Sunday night.
According to police reports, 36-year-old Viniecia Jordan, of Mesa was walking around an apartment complex near Gilbert Road and Main Street when she ran into a mother walking her two daughters, one of whom was a 1-year-old in a stroller.
Apparently one of the girls gave Ms. Jordan a little stink eye, prompting her to yell at the kid to "stop staring at her."
Wait, it gets worse.
When the girls' mother told Jordan that the child was deaf, the maniac tackled the mother to the ground, taking the stroller down with her, according to the report.
After the woman lunged at the mother, the 1-year-old in the stroller fell to the ground causing a black eye, a scratched right temple, and a concussion.
The child was taken to the hospital, where she was treated, and is said to be in good condition.
Jordan, on the other hand, was taken to jail, where she was booked, and is being held on suspicion of aggravated assault.
