Spring Grove man arrested for allegedly taping a child’s mouth shut


A Spring Grove man was arrested by the Carroll Township Police Department for allegedly taping a child’s mouth shut for “talking too much.”

Charges were filed Wednesday against Christopher L. Weaver, 46, for simple assault and harassment for allegedly pushing his girlfriend’s 7-year-old son to the ground and placing scotch tape over the child’s mouth. Police said the child received minor injuries as a result of the incident, which happened April 16, according to police.

Weaver was also charged with simple assault on a female acquaintance that happened a few days before taping the child’s mouth shut, police said.

Weaver was arrested on a parole violation in Dillsburg and placed in York County Prison.

    You really need to update your article. Christopher Weaver never put tape on the 7 yrs old mouth, the child never substained any injuries, Chris never pushed the 7 yr old to the ground. Chris was not charged with the 2 simple assaults, he was charged with harassment & has already served his court ordered 30 days in York County Prison. He is still incarcerated due to waiting for his hearing for a probation violation.
