UPDATE: EUCLID, OH (WOIO) - A Euclid man certainly won't be winning any parenting awards after he allegedly tried to put his newborn son into the oven.
Sammy G. Hunter, Jr. appeared in courtto answer to a slew of charges including , child endangering and assault on a firefighter captain.
The 30-year-old is accused of getting high on 'wet' late last month, turning on the oven at his home on Garden Drive and trying to shove the little boy inside.
Luckily, the baby's mother was able to intervene and stop Hunter.
Hunter then allegedly tried to start a fire by using the natural gas line in the home's kitchen.
That's when his girlfriend - with whom he also fathers a two-year-old child - called for help.
Hunter is also accused of fighting firefighters when they came to help.
The child is expected to be OK.
Hunter pleaded not guilty to the charges and bond was set at $500K.
