Man Held Girl, 7, Underwater in Bathtub for 1 Minute: Miami-Dade Police

A Miami-Dade man was arrested after police say he held a 7-year-old girl underwater in a bathtub for a minute.

Jonathan Gonzalez, 32, was arrested Tuesday on an aggravated child abuse charge. He remained behind bars on $10,000 bond Wednesday, records showed. No attorney was listed.

According to an arrest report, Gonzalez was drunk when he was bathing the girl and submerged her for about a minute.

The girl's mother hit Gonzalez so he would let go of her, the report said. She was gasping for air but didn't require medical attention.

Gonzalez wouldn't speak with an investigator and he was taken into custody, the report said.

Gonzalez's relationship with the girl was unknown.
