Edward allegedly was on drugs when he woke his girlfriend and her 3-year-old son by yelling and shaking. The 27-year-old girlfriend reported that her boyfriend wanted to fight her, and she said, "I have your unborn child, leave me alone."

Police say the suspect went after the 3-year-old, throwing him out the back door of the home and onto the ground. He then picked him up and threw him back in the house through the same door, police say.

According to police, Holmes also went back into the home, picked up the boy and pushed him to the ground. He then left the home, got into a car and crashed into another car a few houses away.

Holmes was given a $200,000 cash only bond, no 10%.

Following the incident he was taken to a local hospital for evaluation. He is now at the Oakland County Jail. If he posts bond, he'll be required to wear a GPS Tether.

Holmes was already out on bail for a previous domestic violence charge.
