Investigators said they received a complaint from the Department of Health and Human Services involving a seven-moth-old child with a broken leg.

During their investigation, police learned Show allegedly stepped on the child's leg while at their home in Vassar Township. Show told detectives the injury was an accident, but police said Show failed to seek medical treatment for the child. 

The child's mother was working at the time, police said. The infant was taken to the hospital by the mother four days after the initial incident, they said. 

Show was later arrested. Police said they also found him with a small amount of marijuana. 

He was released on a $80,000 bond, according to officials.
