COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado Springs police have arrested a 28-year-old man accused of dangling a 3-year-old boy from a third-floor balcony.

The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/TEi17b) officers were called to an apartment complex in the eastern part of the city Friday after neighbors reported that three children were in the care of an intoxicated man.

Officers say they checked on the man, identified as Mario Flores, and as they were leaving they saw him dangle the child over the balcony railing.

Flores was arrested on investigation of child abuse and reckless endangerment. The child was not hurt.
