Placeholder Image
A man who slammed a door against an 11-month-old’s head in a fit of rage has been given a month in jail.The man, Jason William Hobbs, 34, was ordered by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to serve 30 days of an 11-month, 29-day sentence. His time will be served in addition to time he faces in Circuit Court on other, unrelated charges.The first part of his charges come after an incident late last month where he was engrossed in a phone call with his estranged wife while he was in a residence at Asbury Apartments. He was so distracted by the heated call that he burst through the kitchen door inside the residence where the 11-month-old boy was standing.“He shoved the door violently and the door hit (the child) in the head,” a witness said in the warrant against Hobbs.
