Amanda Brumfield arrestedJune 1st, 2009 - 8:42 pm ICT by GD
Billy Bob Thornton’s daughter Amanda Brumfield was arrested on Friday as is reported by the celebrity website TMZ.com.
The charge against her is that she was negligent of the baby she was baby sitting, which lead to the baby’s death. The one year old girl was declared dead on October 3, 2008 in a Florida hospital. The girl had apparently received a blow on her head which resulted in her death.
Amanda Brumfield has told the police that the fatal injury occurred to the little girl when she fell down from her playpen while playing. The fall resulted in the child’s head injury and she also partly bit her tongue off. Brumfield told the cops that she had found the child bleeding. She said that she then cleaned up the blood with paper towel and began playing with the little girl. Brumfield claims that she then placed the toddler next to her on the couch and dozed off. By time she woke up, the body of the little girl had grown clod and limp.
The cops are however not buying her story completely. A spokesperson for the Ocoee Police Department said there were loopholes in the story. According to them, the emergency call for help didn’t come through more than more and a half hours later. Also, an autopsy on the child revealed that she had suffered a fractured skull and encountered a subdural hematoma, a traumatic brain injury in which blood gathers within the inner meningeal layer of the outer protective covering of the brain, also known as dura.
Amanda Brumfield is the oldest daughter of Billy Bob Thornton with his first wife Melissa Gatlin.
