A Florida woman was arrested after she threw her 10-month-old baby against a fence.
Fox News reports Natalee Sesler,25, was visiting a male friend when she threw her child against a wooden fence because he was unable to stand up. Police say the New Port Richey resident threw a rake at the child but missed so she grabbed him by the leg and threw him into a chair.
Witness Shannon Wixon said she was outside with her daughter when she saw Seeler abusing the baby boy:
“They came running into the house and they told me, ‘There’s a lady over here that just threw her baby against the wall. I came out and looked behind the fence of apartment one, and that’s when I’d seen the lady sitting there and her child was laying over a lawn chair, hanging upside down pretty much, screaming, crying,”

Wixon added that Sesler was “just sitting there not doing anything.” Sesler also shook the baby before she left her friend’s home.

Police arrested and charged Sesler with child abuse, child neglect, aggravated assault, resisting a police officer without violence and violating probation.
