Woman accused of throwing child across room

Woman accused of throwing child across room

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — Shreveport police have arrested a 25-year-old woman for allegedly throwing her 17-month-old child across the room while drunk.

Cpl. Breck Scott says Gabrielle Kirkendoll was arrested early Monday on a charge of cruelty to a juvenile.
Scott says hospital staff found that the child wasn't injured from being thrown but found that the child was neglected because of hygiene, hunger and a "saturated diaper which had not been changed in hours."

Child Protective Services took custody of the child after the baby was released from the hospital.
