SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico attorney is facing charges after Santa Fe police say he bit his 3-year-old son on his face.
Police say Geoffrey Scovil was arrested late Saturday when officers found him drunk and sleeping in a house behind a law firm.
According to Santa Fe police spokeswoman Celina Westervelt, the boy had a severe, big red bruise and teeth marks on his check.
The boy told investigators that his parents were playing pool when the boy hit his father with a cue ball. The boy says that’s when his father bit him.
Scovil faces multiple charges, including child abuse, assault on a police officer and obstruction.
It was not known if he had an attorney.
