October 19, 2012

A Johnson County man is in jail after admitting that he threw his 6-week-old daughter because she wouldn't stop crying. Bradley Eddleman, 23, was charged with one count of aggravated battery and one count of child neglect, and is being held in the Johnson County Jail. Eddleman told police he grew frustrated with his daughter, Riley, while watching her in their Edinburgh home and threw her across the living room to the couch, where she hit her head on a wooden arm rest. After her mother discovered the injury, the baby was airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. The baby suffered a skull fracture and may have permanent brain damage.
