The incident was reported near 300 North on Daytona Beach shortly before 4:30 p.m.
Beach Safety officers said an 18-year-old woman of Orange County got into a fight with her boyfriend and used her 6-month-old baby boy to batter the man.
The infant was taken to the hospital and is OK.
The woman, who was not identified, was arrested.
No other details were released.
