A 31-year-old Flori­da man named Bran­don Gilmore was arrest­ed on Sat­ur­day after he alleged­ly dan­gled a 4‑year-old boy over a sec­ond-sto­ry hotel bal­cony and then dropped him. 

The inci­dent occurred just hours after Gilmore had met the boy’s moth­er at the pool of the San­dle­wood Resort in Day­tona Beach and had been drink­ing all day.

Accord­ing to the arrest affi­davit, Gilmore told police that the moth­er had invit­ed him to her room as they planned to get a pierc­ing lat­er that day. 

Gilmore then said he was going to take the boy out­side to play and “scare him a lit­tle bit.” Wit­ness­es report­ed hear­ing the boy scream­ing before he was dropped head­first onto the con­crete below.

The boy was tak­en to the hos­pi­tal but was not seri­ous­ly injured. Gilmore is now charged with felony aggra­vat­ed child abuse and remains in jail with­out bail. 

This is not his first arrest, as he has pre­vi­ous charges for mar­i­jua­na pos­ses­sion and dri­ving with a sus­pend­ed license.
