Whitfield Avenue woman arrested for dropping baby on ground

A 35-year-old Whitfield Avenue woman was charged with dropping a baby to the ground as she walked Tuesday afternoon at York Street and Normal Avenue.

Carrie L. Jaeckle was arrested about 4 p.m. Tuesday after witnesses called police. The infant, who apparently slipped out of the woman’s arms, was taken to Women and Children’s Hospital for an examination but was found to have suffered no injuries.

Jaeckle is being held on charges of third-degree assault, harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.
