A Tuscaloosa man is behind bars after allegedly assaulting his 1-month-old child, causing severe trauma.

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office says a 1-month-old male was brought to Northport-DCH after suffering severe head trauma.  He was later transported to Children's Hospital with life-threatening injuries, and remains in critical condition in the ICU at Children's Hospital.

Investigators from Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide and CID responded to a possible scene on Hagler Coaling Road, and determined that the child's father had intentionally assaulted him, causing skull fractures and other injuries.

Jay Wesley Minor, 37, was charged with first-degree domestic violence assault and aggravated child abuse. He's being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail pending $90,000 bond.
