*Now I am not a violent person, but this is one of those stories that makes me want to slap somebody…hard!

18-year-old Joshua Cooper, a Bay Area resident, allegedly bit off the nose of his infant son because he wouldn’t stop crying.

Yes, this jackass is believed to have disfigured his own child because he was frustrated by the baby doing what babies do: cry.

The horrific scene was reported to the Fairfield police around 8a.m. by the child’s 17-year-old mother.

According to NBC Bay Area:

The 1-month-old infant was taken to North Bay Medical Center where doctors determined that the infant’s nose had been severed and he had possible head trauma.

The infant was then transferred to Oakland Children’s Hospital, where doctors determined that the infant had suffered a skull fracture and a brain hemorrhage and that one-third of the child’s nose had been severed. The child is currently in stable condition.

Cooper is now in county jail; booked for child cruelty and aggravated mayhem.
