The Escambia County Sheriff’s Department said a man was arrested on child neglect charges after he was found walking on the railroad tracks carrying a crying baby and acting in a deranged manner. Responding deputies said James Cook was barefoot and was seen hitting the baby, which had multiple bug bites, a small cut on her forehead, as well as bruises and scratches.  Cook was sweating profusely and acting erratically and said someone was shooting needles from blowgun at the baby. Cook was arrested and charged with child neglect and booked into the Escambia County Jail on a $5,000 bond.
