A Sioux Falls man was arrested on Friday (March 31) after he allegedly dropped his one year old daughter while at a local hotel.

"There were some people inside the hotel," Police Spokesman Sam Clemens told us. "They saw him drop the baby and obviously were concerned."

"It took quite awhile before officers were able to get inside the room. He wouldn't open the door. They used a key from management. When officers got inside, the man was passed out. The baby had some marks from being dropped, but she was not seriously injured."

Clemens says 25-year-old Angelo Brad High Pipe was charged with abuse or cruelty of a minor under the age of seven.
