A traffic stop led to Henderson County Sheriff's investigators charging a man with child abuse.

Major Frank Stout of the Henderson County Sheriff's Office stated that Michael Laviell Thompson, 24, of Hendersonville, was charged with one count of felony child abuse and intentionally inflicting serious body injury.

According to Stout, the investigation began when a deputy stopped a vehicle at 11:30 p.m. on August 23. As the deputy approached the vehicle, he could hear a woman inside screaming about an infant needing help and an ambulance.

The woman stated the she had gone to pick up some food and received a call from Thompson stating that her child had fallen and hit her head. The officer called for EMS after it was apparent that the child's injuries were severe.

The 10-month old child was transported to Mission Hospital in Asheville where she remains in critical, but stable condition.

Thompson, the child's father, turned himself into authorities on Thursday. He is being held on $80,000 bond at the Henderson County Detention Center.
