An 18-year-old woman was arrested after she used her six-month-old son to beat her boyfriend during a fight on a Florida beach, police said.
Tatyana Allen, of Orange County, traveled about 65 miles from her home to celebrate the Fourth of July on Daytona Beach with her boyfriend and their child.
Authorities arrived shortly before 4.30pm and found Allen had battered her boyfriend with the child.
The baby was taken to a hospital Monday afternoon, where he is in good condition, according to Beach Safety Ocean Rescue Captain Tammy Marris.
Allen was taken into custody on charges of battery and infliction of physical and mental injury on a child.
Allen is being held in Volusia County without bail. It’s unclear whether she has an attorney.
