Now what in the hell was he thinking?
Police have arrested an Ohio man after he posted a photo of himself on Facebook holding his 1-year-old daughter and a BB gun!
Domonic Gaines, of Colerain Township, was arrested at his home on Sunday.
According to reports, police initially believed that Gaines was holding a handgun in the photo. However, police say the gun in question turned out to be a BB gun.
The photo depicted Gaines holding his daughter, Paradise Gaines, along with the BB gun. Police say that the close proximity of the gun to the child created a substantial risk of physical harm.
Police also said that they found the BB gun at the residence after the arrest was made.
The 22-year-old’s father said that the picture was taken out of context.
“It’s really been blown out of proportion,” said Gaines’ father, Wilson Dykes.
The father claims that it was the baby’s maternal grandmother who saw the photo and called the police.
Gaines was arraigned on Monday morning on Child Endangerment charges. He’s being held without bond in the Hamilton County Jail.
Blown out of proportion? Nah dude, I don’t think so. A baby and a gun should never be acceptable.
