(Scroll down for video) A Florida deputy lost his job after burning a young child with a hair blower.
Cody Marrone, 21, of Spring Hill, was arrested after he burned the genitalia, chest and buttocks of a 3-year-old boy, who is the son of his girlfriend.
Marrone worked as a Hernando County Detention Deputy.
According to the Sheriff’s Office of Hernando County, deputies were called to the Spring Hill Regional Hospital, after the child was admitted with severe burns that did not appear accidental.
The child’s genital area had become severely inflamed and swollen from the burns.
The burn marks on the child had the shape and pattern of a hair blower, which indicated that the hot device was pressed against the child’s body.
When he was arrested, Marron tried to tell police that the child burned himself while playing with the hair blower.
However, he later admitted to burning the 3-year-old because he did not let him sleep.
The mother, Meghan Sherron, said that she had been at work when the child was injured by Marrone.
Marrone was booked into jail on charges of aggravated child abuse and child neglect. He was released after posting $20,000 bail.
