Man Accused Of Tossing Child Across Room

An April 19th court date has been set for a Gallatin man, facing charges of aggravated child abuse in Putnam County. Authorities say 22-year-old Terry Dickerson is accused of throwing his two-year-old daughter across a room during an argument with the child's mother over the weekend. Warrants in the case allege that Dickerson and the mother of his child "had argued and shoved each other" and he picked up the little girl "and was holding her while choking her mother. He then allegedly threw the 29-month-old child across the room in order to get a better grip on the mother. The child was taken to the hospital for treatment of a possible concussion. Dickerson turned himself in at the jail on Tuesday, where he was also served with a warrant for domestic assault.
