(Scroll down for video) A man became furious at a little boy for eating the last slice of cheese, police in Tennessee said.
Memphis Police said that they arrested 30-year-old Anthony Gulledge, after being accused of beating the 3-year-old son of his girlfriend.
According to the police investigation, Gulledge just wanted to enjoy a piece of cake at the end of the day on Saturday. When he came home, Gulledge discovered that the last slice of cheesecake was gone from the fridge.
When Gulledge learned that the son of his girlfriend ate it, he became so furious that he whipped the boy and grabbed him by the ankles.
The boy was taken to a nearby hospital, where he is being treated for a broken thigh bone, dislocated vertebrae in his back and bruised lungs.
The boy remains hospitalized in critical condition. Gulledge was booked into jail, and his bail was set at $210,000. He was charged with child neglect, aggravated child abuse and domestic assault.
The child’s mother, Katrina Johnson, was also arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse. Investigators said that Johnson did not try to stop the beating and did not take her son to the hospital until the next day.
