Man arrested after 3-month-old son hospitalized for head injury

Maine State Police early Monday morning arrested a Wayne man after his 3-month-old son was hospitalized overnight after the child was thrown down a flight of stairs, a state press release reported.
William Lord Jr., 39, was arrested by the State Police Tactical Team and charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child. He was taken to the Kennebec County Jail. Wayne is a small town between Augusta and Lewiston.
Police say Lord's son, Preston, suffered a skull fracture after the boy was thrown down stairs in an child safety seat. The baby was not secured in the seat and struck his head, police said. The boy's mother, Ericka Melanson, took the baby to MaineGeneral in Augusta, where he is being treated. The injury is not believed to be life threatening, police said.
Lord, who was intoxicated, apparently went to bed after Melanson and her son left the house, police said. He was awakened Monday morning by a PA system from the tactical team after an arrest warrant had been issued. Lord came outside the house and was taken into custody. Another child lives at the house and was not injured, police said. Lord's arrest came after the older child left for school on a school bus, just after 7 a.m.
