Police say a mother and her boyfriend face charges after the man allegedly beat the woman's 3-year-old son for eating the last slice of cheesecake.
According to a report on WFSB.com, 30-year-old Anthony Gulledge arrived to their Memphis home Saturday and found that the child had eaten the dessert.
Gulledge allegedly dragged the boy and beat him to the point that he needed to be hospitalized.
The boy's mother, Katrina Johnson, took him to the hospital the following day. The 3-year-old suffered a broken thigh bone, dislocated vertebrae, and bruised lungs.
Both Gulledge and Johnson face child abuse charges.
