Two parents have been put behind bars after being filmed in a tug-of-war involving their baby. Britnie Haas and Elias Holt were seen fighting over the 11-month-old boy in a hotel car park in Utah, USA. Haas was seen with the infant on her hip arguing with Holt. Holt then attempted to take the baby from her.
A second woman, identified as Holt’s aunt Melinda Ylinen, was then seen trying to intervene but Haas violently lashed out at her multiple times. She is also seen attacking Holt during the scuffle and can be heard screaming at him as they wrestle for control of the baby. The 11-month-old was seen dangerously dangling as the three-way fight continued.
Ylinen told Fox 13: “When I was saying to him, ‘Let me take the baby inside,’ that’s when she grabs the baby out of his arms so violently. The baby was really low on her hip, and he was bowing backwards, and I was afraid his back was going to snap.” Haas and Holt were then arrested on Friday with the mother facing charges of child abuse, domestic violence in the presence of a child and assault.
