Father Throws 5-Year-Old Son Out Of Window

Last updated on Tuesday, October 8, 2013

(INDIANAPOLIS) - A father is in jail, accused of dropping his five-year-old son out of a third-story apartment window.

Police arrested 32-year-old Brandon Jordan for neglect of a dependent and criminal recklessness. The boy told WTHR News his dad dropped him out of the window, but he is okay.

Witnesses say the child was home with Jordan Saturday night when they saw him drop the boy to the ground. Although officers arrived and saw the child walking, playing and talking, they still called for paramedics to check him out.

Barbara Berry who witnessed the crime says she was watching television, doing hair and everybody was sitting outside when they saw a little baby come out the window head first.

Berry says Jordan told them the baby kicked him and he was going to show an example to the baby.

Police say the wet grass may have played a role in the boy being able to walk away without any serious injuries.

Jordan is scheduled in court later this week. His bond is currently set at $200,000, but that could change.
