Mother Filmed Blowing Marijuana Smoke Into Her Baby's Mouth To Get Her To Stop Crying

MAILONLINE.COM - A 21-year-old mother has been charged with child abuse after being filmed blowing marijuana smoke into her baby's mouth to get her to stop crying.

Jessica Callaway is also accused of beating her 10-month-old daughter because she would not stop crying and threatening the kick her in the mouth.

The young mother told police she carried out the alleged abuse because she was having a 'bad day' and had trouble picking an outfit to wear for a night out.

The alleged abuse was secretly filmed by her flatmate on her cell phone and handed to police in Gilbert, Arizona.

Callaway told police she had been getting ready for a night out and her newborn baby was crying while lying on floor.

On the video Callaway is seen walking into the room and immediately picking the baby up by her leg and spanking her.

She then told the baby 'shut the f*** up before I kick you in the mouth'.

Callaway is seen repeatedly hitting the baby in the face.

She is then alleged to have blown smoke from marijuana into the baby's mother in an attempt to stop her from crying.

The flatmate told police the baby seemed very thirsty after ingesting the drug.

Investigators said Callaway confessed to the abuse and also admitted blowing drug smoke into her daughter's mouth of previous occasions.

Her Facebook page contained several references to parties and drugs, but the last posting before the alleged abuse read: 'I need a babysitter'.

A local TV station who ran clips of the abuse was bombarded with messages from angry viewers who were shocked by the footage of the abuse.

Callaway was charged with three counts of child abuse.

She was released from jail on $2,700 bond.
