WZZM 13's partner, the Grand Haven Tribune reports Bentley McIntyre has experienced a number of seizures and has a staph infection in his lungs. An MRI has also indicated there is damage to the frontal lobe as well as the back of his brain.
"The MRI showed brain bleed, which is indicative of shaken baby," Spring Lake/Ferrysburg Police Chief Roger DeYoung said.
Bently's father, Justin McIntyre, 23, was with the baby at the time of the incident. The baby's mother, Kaylee Zalsman, was at work.
McIntyre is lodged in the Ottawa County Jail on a charge of first-degree child abuse. Bond was set at $75,000. The penalty for a first-degree child abuse conviction is up to 15 years in prison.
