LARGO — An 18-year-old Largo man faces felony charges of aggravated child abuse after he hit a 17-year-old over the head with a broken beer bottle, sheriff's deputies say.

Charles J. Calloway was arrested Tuesday evening at his home at 11695 126th Ter. N after the 17-year-old's brother told deputies that Calloway had done it, said Cecilia Barreda, Pinellas County sheriff's spokeswoman.

The incident happened early Monday at a popular Largo hangout, Barreda said.

Deputies say Calloway was charged with child abuse because the 17-year-old is a minor.

The victim was transported from Just Chillin, at 1201 Gooden Crossing, to Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater. He is not being identified because of his age, and information on the extent of his injuries was not available.

When deputies responded to the call at 1:09 a.m. Monday, more than 150 people filled the hangout's parking lot, Barreda said.

She said the two teens involved were acquaintances.
