CAMBRIDGE, Ohio, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- An Ohio father was charged Thursday with felony domestic violence for allegedly putting his 3-year-old son in a clothes dryer and turning it on.

Jamial Bayly, 40, was being held on $30,000 bond without 10 percent, WTOV-TV, Steubenville, Ohio reported.

Bayly was arrested and initially charged with child endangerment Sunday after police were called to the Cambridge home on a well-being check of the child, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported. The charge was upgraded at his arraignment Thursday.

Deputies Sunday allegedly discovered the child had been put in the turned-on dryer as a form of punishment, but found no visible injuries to the boy.

A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Bayly was convicted of domestic violence in 1999 for assaulting a 5-year-old family member.
