LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A man is facing charges after he allegedly assaulted his wife, causing her to drop their baby.

It happened around 6 p.m. Saturday at a home off Hensley Road.

Deputies were dispatched to a domestic violence complaint and upon arriving at the scene, learned that 29-year-old Truman L. Aubuchon apparently grabbed his wife by the hair and was attempting to throw her out the front door of the residence. During the dispute, he allegedly caused her to drop a baby to the floor.

Deputies noted a visible bump swelling on the baby’s head. Allegedly this individual admitted drinking most of the day and had apparently been cursing in front of children there.

Aubuchon was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and was lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
