Baby On Life Support: Cobb County Couple Charged With Child Cruelty

COBB COUNTY, GA- A COBB county couple has been arrested and faces several charges. The father Shomari Holmes aggravated battery and child cruelty charges. Chantelle Driver, is charged with cruelty and deprivation charges for witnessing the abuse and not seeking help, police said.
Police say Chantelle Driver and Shomari Holmes were taken into custody on Saturday after police responded to a call in reference to a unresponsive juvenile. Cops found a 21-month-old boy in the home. The infant was taken immediately to Kennestone Hospital in critical condition. He remains on life support.

In the arrest warrant, the child was injured long before police were called, and the child was acting “lethargic and scared” for the last week. Warrants also said a 3-year-old girl in the apartment had suffered some abuse, and police placed her in state custody.
