Man Faces Abuse Charges; Allegedly Bit Baby, 3-Year-Old

A man who allegedly bit a baby and a 3-year-old child Friday was charged with two counts of child abuse and domestic assault, sheriff's Deputy Travis Hoxie said in a report.

Rusty Church, 24, of 2090 Horse Creek Road, allegedly did "slam" a woman on the ground by her hair and attempted to bite her, a report said.

Church "did knowingly bite a 3-year-old child on the right side of the face, leaving bite marks on the child's face," the report said.

Church also allegedly bit a 6-month-old baby on the face, leaving bite marks.

The Tennessee Department of Children's Services was contacted after the incidents, the report said.

During the incident, Church was also allegedly "throwing items inside the house, damaging a ceiling fan" and broke the front door glass, "causing fear to family members inside the home," the report said.

Church was held on no bond pending a first scheduled General Sessions Court appearance today.
