A Ukrainian Orthodox priest from North Jersey reportedly has been arrested and is facing charges for allegedly choking a 4-month-old girl inside a Walmart in Overland Park, Kan.
Police have not said if they know why Zhownirovych was in Kansas.
According to the reports, Zhownirovych was in a checkout counter at the Walmart when he allegedly grabbed the baby by the throat and her mother screamed.
Police said he appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The baby's mother said she did not know him.
Zhownirovych is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.
