    A New Hampshire man accused of shaking his 3-month-old son twice, allegedly out of aggression toward a video game system, has pleaded not guilty and is being held on $200,000 bail.

    Jerry Carrier faces charges of first- and second-degree assault.

    The Eagle Times reports the infant was first hospitalized on Jan. 5; the 26-year-old Carrier allegedly shook him three times after expressing frustration while playing "Call of Duty." The infant went limp and was non-responsive. Police said he has been hospitalized several times, including the discovery of a brain hemorrhage on Jan. 19.

    Police arrested Carrier on Feb. 6 because of an active arrest warrant.

    Carrier was ordered Friday to have no contact with his son; the judge allowed him to have contact with his wife after his lawyer requested it.
