VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) - The Valdosta Police Department arrested a father after his 5-month-old son was rushed to the hospital.

Jasion Greathouse, 20, is in the Lowndes County jail, charged with aggravated battery and cruelty to children in the first degree.

Investigators say Greathouse’s 5-month-old son was taken to the hospital in early May, after the father claimed the infant was injured in a fall. Doctors found multiple fractures throughout the baby’s body that were “not accidental” according to Valdosta police.

The child remains in a Jacksonville hospital.

“This is a great example of multiple agencies working together to ensure that this offender is held accountable for his actions. We continue to hope for this baby’s recovery,” said Valdosta Police Chief Leslie Manahan.
