PANAMA CITY — A Bay County man has been arrested after he allegedly kicked over a stroller containing a 10-month-old child, according to arrest reports.

James Edward Byrd, 50, appeared in court Thursday on a charge of child abuse in connection with the incident.

The Panama City Police Department reported Byrd was in an argument with the child's mother and that as he attempted to attack her, he turned toward the stroller and intentionally kicked it. The stroller was knocked over and the 10-month-old child within fell out onto the floor and struck her head on the floor, police reported.
