Sabine County grand jury indicts man accused of throwing beer bottle at baby

SABINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - A Sabine County grand jury has indicted a 19-year-old man in connection to allegations that he threw a beer bottle at a baby boy and yanked the child's arm during an altercation with his girlfriend that occurred on June 5.

John Thomas Webb, of Deweyville, was indicted on a felony injury to a child charge back in August. East Texas News obtained a copy of the indictment on Wednesday.

When Webb was arrested, he was originally charged with injury to a child, assault, and interfering with an emergency call. Chief Deputy George Griffin with the Sabine County Sheriff's Office said Webb was arrested in Orange and transferred to Sabine County.

Griffin said the woman told authorities she was assaulted by her boyfriend on June 5 after he came home drunk. During some of the assault, she had a baby in her arms. She said he also took the phone away from her when she tried to call 911.
