Mom Of ‘Washer Toddler’ Will Press Charges Against Babysitter

Saskia David, the mother of Samier Bush, the toddler who was videotaped being put into a commercial washing machine, told the Today Show she would press charges against the babysitter who was responsible for him at the time.

The incident occurred on May 11, but was not widely reported until a surveillance video of the child being loaded into the machine went viral on the Internet earlier this week. The machine automatically locked and began to cycle but was disabled by a swift thinking employee of the laundromat. Initially, the people in the video were thought to be Samier’s parents, but yesterday, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office identified them as a babysitter and her male friend.


The mother explained that she only learned of the incident on Tuesday night at about midnight when she saw the video on the local news. “I was, like, I know that ain’t my child, oh, oh my god…I didn’t know until the next morning until the police came knocking on my door.” David says Sandra, the babysitter, had told her he had fallen down two stairs. The boy still has a visible mark on his forehead and mom claims he needs more medical tests.

David says she does not like to watch the video because it makes her feel “sick,” “angry,” and “sad.” But she reports that baby Samier is doing well. “He’s still talkative. And he’s beautiful.” The boy’s father is currently in prison, but David says he’s been informed of the situation he also wants charges to be filed.

Do you agree that both the babysitter and her male friend should be prosecuted? Tell us what you think!

Lindsay Lohan Involved in Alleged Hit-and-Run

Lindsay Lohan actually HIT A PERSON with her car Wednesday night … And then she FLED THE SCENE!!!

Apparently, there were paparazzi all over place after she left the Sayers Club last night and as she was trying to get out of the parking lot in her new Porsche, she “lightly” struck the manager of the nearby Hookah Lounge!!! Ouch!!! But did she stop??? Of course not!! She’s LiLo!! LOL!!! Girl just proceeded to peel the hell on out!!

Cops did arrive at the scene, but it may have been Linds who called them. You know… for her protection, ha! And according to reports, the manager wasn’t injured so it technically wasn’t a “hit and run” and she technically didn’t violate any law. But… c’mon…


UPDATE: Spoke too soon!

Sources reveal that in fact the club manager LiLo rolled over with her car actually was taken to the emergency room shortly after his take down. As of right now, an official report has not been filed, BUT police have been informed that the manager intends to press charges and hire an attorney.

Yeah, that’s right. This guy is gunning for her. What’s interesting though is that according to sources on the scene, when Lindsay hit the guy while attempting a 3-point turn, she only grazed his knee and when the paparazzi on scene came to his aid, he insisted that he was fine. It was only AFTER he heard that it was the infamous Lindsay Lohan who tapped his funny bone did he SUDDENLY have an injury! How convenient!
