When Anthony Badalamenti was named a trainer on the fourth season of The Biggest Loser, viewers had no idea how prescient the show's title was at the time when it came to this weight lifter.
Badalamenti, a bodybuilder from Merrick, New York is sitting in jail tonight, following an arraignment in First District Court in Hempstead.
The meat head was arrested on charges of second-degree assault, possession of a dangerous weapon and endangering the welfare of a child. He's accused of beating the six-year old son of his live-in girlfriend, Jessica Muniz (who faces the same charges).
According to police, the child was beaten with weightlifting belts on Friday night; he allegedly suffered multiple lacerations and bruises on his right hand, right leg and buttocks. The boy was treated for his injuries and released to a relative.
