Asheville, NC (ACT) - An Arden father is facing a felony child abuse charge after police say he fractured his 3-month-old child's leg.
Trevor Warren Ridge, 35, of Peacock Lane, was charged Wednesday with intentional child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, according to a warrant at the Buncombe County magistrate's office.
Ridge is accused of assaulting the baby Dec. 14 causing a "spiral femur fracture," according to the warrant. Investigators said a doctor who examined the child determined the fracture was caused after the leg was twisted.
Asheville police investigated the case.
Ridge is being held at the Buncombe County Detention Facility under a $10,000 bond.
