On January 25 Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call at a local hospital in reference to a possible cruelty to a juvenile. When they arrived, deputies were advised by hospital staff there was a 3 month old baby boy in the emergency room who had bruising throughout his entire head, eyes, ears, back, and inside his mouth, as well as, a laceration on his lip. The baby’s father, Jordan M. Vidrine, 23 from Sulphur, admitted to striking the baby in the head but said he was aiming for a dog not the boy.

Vidrine was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center, charged with cruelty to a juvenile. His bond is still pending.
