FULTON – Seven-month-old Mickey James West Jr. is back home. His father was held in the Itawamba County Jail Friday after it was reported he kidnapped the boy Thursday night.
Mickey West, 20, is charged with domestic violence after he got into a physical altercation with the child’s mother, police said. West took the child and left the home, but the child was recovered early Friday morning unharmed. Because West is the biological father of the child, but is not married to his mother, Sheriff Chris Dickinson said West had no legal right to take the child.
