TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A Lafayette man is facing multiple counts including neglect of a dependent and battery on a child.

Police said Clayton Jean, 21, of Lafayette, shattered a car window with his baby in the back seat.

Officers were called to a home on Friday because Jean got into an argument with the child’s mother, Paige Brinson. Jean said he was supposed to have the 11-month-old child all weekend and got angry when Brinson picked up the child early.

According to court documents, as Brinson was driving away, Jean began to hit her car with his hands – shattering the passenger side window.

Brinson stopped at a safe distance and checked on the child. Officers said the baby was bleeding from small cuts on his face and there was broken glass all over his body and car seat.

Jean faces felony charges of neglect of a dependent and battery on a child. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
