St. Augustine, FL - A night of partying ends with a toddler in the hospital.
The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says Joseph Izzi had been partying with a friend before he came to the Fairview Condominiums on Domenico Circle in St. Augustine to smoke marijuana.
Witnesses tell deputies Izzi grabbed his two-year-old daughter and threw her out of the door and down a flight of concrete stairs. She was treated at Flagler Hospital for head injuries and is now in the care of relatives.
When deputies arrived at the complex, they found Izzi running naked through the parking lot. He resisted arrest, kicking and attempting to bite the officers.
Izzi is charged with cruelty to a child, resisting and officer and battery.
