Minneapolis, Minn. (The Weekly Vice) - Lisa Marie Martin, a 26-year-old Minnesota woman was jailed Tuesday after she allegedly pushed her baby down a flight of stairs in a baby stroller during an argument with her boyfriend.
According to police, Martin was arguing with her boyfriend at the Lake Street light-rail train station when she pushed her baby down a flight of stairs in retaliation for becoming pregnant again.
Investigators say witnesses saw Martin yelling at her boyfriend from the top of a flight of stairs as he walked down the stairs in an attempt to get away from her.
Witnesses stated Martin yelled "You already got a 12 and 14 year old you don't give a shit about and now you don't give a shit about this one! I'm going gonna push this one down the steps - I'm pregnant again!"
That's when Martin reportedly shoved the stroller containing the baby down the steps. Witnesses say the stroller bounced down a few steps before tipping over - tossing the baby onto the concrete steps.
According to the arrest report, Martin neglected to check on the baby after he had fallen - but instead, ran toward the boyfriend and began punching him in the face. The baby received non-life threatening injuries in the fall, including bruises and scrapes to his head, face and leg.
Martin, who told police she was two months pregnant, admitted to drinking about five beers before confronting her boyfriend.
She was booked into jail on charges of felony fourth-degree assault, gross misdemeanor endangerment and neglect of a child and misdemeanor domestic assault.
