Habersham County has decided not to pay the medical bills for a baby injured when a flash bomb went off during a raid.
On May 27, 19-month-old Bounkham 'Bou Bou' Phonesavanh was injured when the Habersham County Police SWAT team threw a flash bang grenade into the play-pen the child was sleeping in during a drug raid.
Police were serving a no-knock search warrant for an alleged drug dealer, but no drugs were found inside the house and no one was arrested.
Baby Bou Bou spent five weeks at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston recovering from third-degree burns to his chest, injuries to his face and other areas.
The county said it will not pay the hospital bills due to the pending lawsuit.
