Greeley couple charged with slapping, shaking baby
GREELEY, Colo. — A couple was arrested Tuesday on charges of slapping and shaking a 1-year-old child, police said.
Greeley police arrested Reba Doyle, 21, and Scott Liles, 23, after another couple reported seeing the two hitting the baby, the Greeley Tribune reported.
The other couple allegedly showed police a video of Doyle slapping the baby and Liles shaking the baby to get her to stop crying, the paper said.
According to an arrest affidavit, Doyle and Liles both initially told police they never hit the baby but, after watching the video, both admitted to the incident. Doyle reportedly told the officer that was the only time anything like that had happened, and she “really kicked herself.”
Each adult faces one count of misdemeanor child abuse without injury. The couple was being held in the Weld County Jail on $2,000 bond.
