Felony Child Abuse Arrest
A man appeared in Henderson County court, this morning, on charges of seriously injuring his 2-month-old child.
Deputies arrested 21-year-old Anthony James Bastine, of Hillbilly Drive in Hendersonville, yesterday.
He's charged with felony child abuse.
Arrest warrants show they started the investigation last Friday when doctors admitted the infant girl into Mission Hospital with head trauma and broken bones.
Due to the extent of the injuries, the child was transported to Chapel Hill Medical Center for treatment.
Bastine is currently being held in the Henderson County Detention Facility under a $150,000.00 secured bond.
