An Euclid, Ohio dad has been arrested for several criminal charges including child endangerment, attempted murder and assault on a firefighter. Sammy G. Hunter, Jr. faces these serious criminal charges from incidents that took place at his home. It was reported that Mr. Hunter got high, turned on his oven, and tried to shove his son inside the oven. The baby’s mother stopped Mr. Hunter from doing this. Mr. Hunter then tried to start a fire in the home that had a natural gas line. Firefighters responded to the scene. Then, Mr. Hunter assaulted firefighters. Of course, Mr. Hunter was arrested for these allegations. He pled not guilty to the charges.

Mr. Hunter will be entitled to an attorney to represent him on the criminal charges. One of the witnesses was the child’s mother. I suspect that there is a history of domestic violence in this household. The local police and child welfare agencies will conduct an investigation into this matter.
