A White County man was taken into police custody Sunday night for abusing his girlfriend's two-year-old son while she was at work.
Andrew Parker was charged with aggravated child abuse after he and the child's mother took the young victim to an area hospital for treatment for a broken arm, bruising and a brain injury.
The child has since been transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville where he was last listed in stable condition in the intensive care unit.
Parker, 25, was booked into the White County jail on a $500,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
