Pensacola, FL (February 18, 2019) – Police say that a 23-year-old man, identified as Nidre Williams, was arrested for striking a 2-year-old after the infant spilled baby formula on the floor. The investigation started after somebody called the child abuse hotline in Escambia County on January 8 to tell them that the 2-year-old was being abused by Williams. The Department of Children and Family Services subsequently launched an investigation. Witnesses claimed that Nidre spanked the child with force after she spilled baby formula all over the floor. One witness said that the way that Nidre struck the child was not the “way you hit a two-year-old.” A forensic exam was conducted and showed that the 2-year-old had deep bruising on her bottom and a mark on her back. Williams was arrested after he refused to meet with deputies upon the claims being founded. In the past, Williams has been arrested for violent charges, including one occasion where he threw a woman’s head against a wall and strangled her while a baby was in her arms.
