Ziedman picks her up and put her in the car, then goes back inside where the video shows him continue to attack the woman, even ripping off her clothes.

She told police at one point she said she "lost consciousness as a result of the punching."

Prosecutors say the suspect had been drinking and drove off with the baby from the gas station to Potawatomi Casino, where a security guard saw the man with the baby and called police

When police arrived, they say he failed a field sobriety test.

According to the criminal complaint, the woman told police she had only known Ziedman for a couple of days and was staying at his mother's house with her daughter.

He faces several felonies, including child abduction and substantial battery.

WISN said Ziedman is a convicted felon.

If he's convicted on the new charges, he could spend more than a half century in jail.
