Cops: Ohioan stuck son in dryer, then turned it on

CAMBRIDGE, Ohio (AP) -- Police say an Ohio man who stuck his 3-year-old son in a clothes dryer as punishment and then turned it on is facing child endangerment charges.

The Zanesville Times Recorder reports that 40-year-old Jamial Bayly is scheduled for a video arraignment Thursday in Cambridge Municipal Court.

Guernsey County Sheriff Michael McCauley says deputies went to the Cambridge home Sunday after getting a tip from family members.

The sheriff says the father acknowledged putting the boy in the dryer earlier in the day. Deputies didn't see any visible injuries on him. McCauley says he doesn't know how long the boy had been in the dryer.

The sheriff says the boy was released to his mother, who wasn't home when deputies arrived.

Cambridge Municipal Court records don't list an attorney for Bayly.
