Spencer County Father Jailed for Abuse of 5-month old Son

     Indiana State Police arrested a Chrisney man Wednesday evening on battery charges after he allegedly abused his five-month old child. 

     On Sunday, April 27, Trooper Jason Dunsworth opened an investigation into a complaint of possible child abuse. Initial information revealed that Samuel Brinson, 22, Chrisney, was caring for his five month old son early Sunday morning, and became frustrated due to the child crying. Brinson allegedly squeezed the child’s abdomen area too hard as Brinson picked him up, causing significant bruising. As the child continued to cry out, Brinson purportedly bit the child’s ears, causing bruising. 

     The child was taken to Memorial Hospital in Jasper by his mother, who unknowingly believed the bruising might have been a rash. The child was transferred to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, to be further evaluated for internal injuries. 

     Trooper Dunsworth was issued an arrest warrant today by the Spencer County Circuit Court for Brinson. After attempting to find Brinson, Trooper Dunsworth met with Brinson in Ferdinand and placed him under arrest, charging him with Battery Causing Injury to a Child Less Than 14 Years of Age, a class D Felony. Brinson was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Spencer County Jail.
