GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A 20–year–old father of two is facing felony child abuse charges. Authorities say he hurt his infant son over a video game.

Edwardo Christy was arrested November 18. Authorities say at first he lied and said the baby fell off the couch. But after failing a lie detector test admitted that he hurt the baby.

Christy told authorities he was playing a video game and when the infant wouldn't stop crying he picked him to take him upstairs and accidentally hit the baby's head on the wall and "knocked him out."

Christy says the baby stopped crying and didn't show signs of life so he threw water on his face.

According to an affidavit, the injuries could result in a moderate to severe brain injury.

The baby is at Children's Hospital.

Christy is being held on a $60,000 bond.
