Father Arrested For Branding Infant With Heat Gun

Most parents would agree they should always have their child's safety at heart and even put their well being before their own, but a father in Gwinnett County, Georgia did the opposite.

Police say, Tory Gentry, 36, was arrested Monday for branding his 5-month-old child with a heat gun disfiguring him leaving a large burn on the child's side.

Authorities did not say what the brand was but he is being held without bond on child cruelty and aggravated battery charges. The baby and a 2-year-old sibling have been taken into custody by the state after doctors found multiple rib fractures and bruising.

The infant was also diagnosed with "Failure to Thrive," a medical condition marked by insufficient weight gain.

Both children are currently in the custody of Georgia Division of Family and Children Services.
