LINCOLNTON, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Lincoln County have charged a man with felony child abuse after a 3-month-old baby was taken to a local hospital with a broken bone.

The sheriff’s office says Huntersville Presbyterian Hospital reported last week that a mother and father had brought a baby to the hospital with a broken femur. The hospital reported the injury to authorities.

An investigator charged 24-year-old David Lawrence Simmons Jr. of Denver. He is free on $5,000 bond from the Lincoln County jail. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
