This is yet another one of those cases where you take one look at the mugshot and think “This person is bad news”. Then you see that the case happened in a trailer park in Flori-DUH and you’re not surprised.
Jonathon Savas (24) has an unusual way of making his baby go to sleep. According to witnesses, he sat on the head of his 10-month-old son in a strange and potentially dangerous attempt to make him go to sleep. Mr. Savas and his baby were staying at the trailer of Irene Hossain, at the Sha-De-Land trailer park in DeLand, FL, after showing up with the baby, who wasn’t wearing any clothes. Savas is currently homeless. According to Ms. Hossain, the baby would not go to sleep (probably because the heat and humidity) so our scribbled-on scumbag Savas put the baby on the lounge face-down and sat on his head as some sort of bizarre punishment or soothing motion. Obviously, the baby didn’t like that and screamed his head off. Irene told him to knock it off, and Savas turned around and said “It’s my baby and I can do what I want”. Eventually he got it through his batshit brain that sitting on the baby wouldn’t work, so he stopped.
Irene didn’t call the cops straightaway, because she was afraid that Savas might sit on her too. Police later found Savas and the baby down the road, and Savas told he’d “disciplined” the baby but wouldn’t go into further detail. He was arrested and charged with child abuse, and drug possession after police found a pill container, baggies and needles in his backpack. He currently resides at Volusia County Jail and his bail has been set at $50,000.
Okay. Okay. Okay. How the hell has this drug-addicted bum managed to keep a baby alive for 10 months?! The poor baby had no clothes on, and his dopey daddy has been spending all his money on drugs. Some people have presumed that Irene Hossain is the mother of the unfortunate mite, but no news source actually says this. So where the hell is the incubator of this poor babe and why did she let a drug addict take her baby? Someone had better get that baby away from him before he kills him or sells him for more drugs.
