Footage surfaced earlier this week showing 46-year-old Joseph Fults driving over the legs of an 18-month-old baby girl following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. Not much could be seen in the blurry footage other than an apparent physical struggle.
But clearer footage shows the mother was partly responsible for the near tragic incident that unfolded.
Fults was involved in a fight with his 23-year-old girlfriend and her 7-year-old son early Monday morning. The footage captured Fults fighting the woman through the driver side window.
“Get yo baby!” Fults said as he shoved the baby into the arms of the woman through the driver’s side window.
“Don’t throw my motherf-cking daughter!” the mother screams.
“Aye, he just threw my daughter G! Call the police on his a--!” she tells a nearby bystander.
“Don’t put yo hands on my mama!” the woman’s son said as he attempted to intervene in the struggle between his mother and Fults.
The mother continues the struggle with Fults as she dangles the arm of her baby with her left hand. Fults drives the vehicle during the struggle as the mother drops the child to ground. Fults is reported to have driven over the legs of the child.
Fults was arrested a short time later and charged with misdemeanor battery and misdemeanor domestic battery, according to the Chicago Sun Times. He was reportedly ordered held on $100,000 bail Tuesday.
The baby is in stable condition at University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, according to the Chicago Tribune.
