A mother was arrested for injuring her son during a heated argument with her boyfriend.

Police in Louisiana were called to a hospital after a newborn baby was brought in by his father with injuries to his skull.

Police learned that the three-week-old baby boy suffered a fracture of his right temporal bone when his mother threw him at his father’s feet during an argument.

24-year-old Heidy Rios of Terrytown was arrested by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The baby’s father told police that he was having a heated argument with his girlfriend when she threw the baby at him and said “Take your f*****g son,” according to police.

At first, Rio denied holding the child during the argument, but when a witness contradicted her story, Rio said that “she may have dropped the child” during the dispute.

She was charged with cruelty to a juvenile. She is awaiting a bail hearing.
