Here's what they didn't tell you in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding": using Windex is a slippery slope that eventually can lead to child abuse.

At least it was for a 25-year-old Florida man over the weekend, who apparently attacked his 6-month-old daughter with the sudsy blue glass cleaner.

According to police, the baby's mother awoke Saturday morning to the sound of unusually loud crying. The mother went to the baby — who along with her crib had unexpectedly been moved into the family living room — and discovered she was covered in Windex. The baby also had cuts on her face.

The man — who was high on "synthetic marijuana K2," according to the mother — was one only one awake when the incident happened. He now faces child abuse and disorderly conduct charges, according to WWSB. The baby suffered some head and face trauma.
