Cop threw baby on ground on a bet: officials
A Chinese police officer received what people are saying is a minimal punishment after authorities said he grabbed a seven-month-old baby from her parents and threw her to the ground on a bet, reports say.
Guo Zengzi was allegedly bet by friends that a man holding the female baby next to his wife was a doll. Zengzi, a policeman from Linzhou, was out drinking with friends on his day off last month when they saw the couple with the baby.
Zengzi allegedly touched the baby girl’s face, grabbed her and threw her to the ground, fracturing her skull.
Yueyue, the baby, suffered three cranial fractures, according to reports. The officer received just over two weeks of disciplinary confinement but no additional punishment, reports say.
