Walland man charged with aggravated child abuse

Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong said a 25-year-old Walland man was charged with aggravated child abuse late last week.

Bobby William Halcomb, 25, Humphry Road, Walland, is being held on a $100,000 bond pending a hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court today at 1:30.

Halcomb was taken into custody last Thursday after his three month old son was admitted into Children's Hospital with severe injuries.

The Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division is investigating the incident. Additional information about the incident will be released as it becomes available.
