Man Who Bit Three-Year-Old Boy After Watching "True Blood" Will Spend 30 Days In Jail

A Wisconsin man who told police he had been watching the HBO vampire show “True Blood” with the three-year-old boy he was babysitting before biting the child multiple times on the neck pleaded no contest this week to a felony child abuse charge.

Mark Adams, 43, pictured in the mug shot at right, was arrested in January after the mother of the boy came home to find the child--identified in the report as "RDT Jr."--on the floor crying with three purple marks on his neck. According to a Sheboygan County Circuit Court complaint, a detective “described the bite marks as approximately the size of a hand-held eraser or the size of someone’s mouth.”

When confronted by cops Adams admitted to leaving the bruises but claimed it was not intentional since they were “were goofing around, wrestling and nuzzling.” But Adams later admitted that he might have said something to the boy “to the effect of wanting to suck RDT Jr.’s blood” and that “they were watching 'True Blood', which is an HBO mini series about vampires."

As part of his plea, Adams was sentenced to 30 days in the Sheboygan County Detention Center and three years probation.

Something tells me he's gonna be sucking on more then neck for the next 30 days. =====>
Yeah, he looks like the babysitting type. I wonder what else he was interested in "nuzzling".
Good thing they weren't watching professional wrestling. Kid would have got stomped.
