EL PASO, Texas -- New details have emerged about the recent arrest of a Fort Bliss soldier accused of beating his two sons while high on the drug LSD.

Zakary Frampton faces two counts of injury to a child after allegedly assaulting his 3-year-old and 7-year-old sons.

According to an arrest affidavit obtained by ABC-7, when El Paso police arrived at Frampton's home the night of Nov. 22, they found him naked on the living room floor and his two sons suffering severe injuries.

According to the affidavit, officers talked to two men who were guests at the home who said they and Frampton took LSD - but added that Frampton had already taken some of the drug before they arrived.

In the affidavit, one of the two guests said Frampton put on white gloves with party lights attached.  Surveillance video previously obtained by ABC-7 showed a man appearing to be Frampton running down the street naked while wearing only shoes and gloves with lights on them.

Officers said the guests indicated that Frampton became agitated at one point after getting high and started fighting with them, punching one of the men in the face before he allegedly attacked his sons.

Court documents stated that the witnesses observed Frampton repeatedly punching the older boy in the face before throwing him against a kitchen island.

The affidavit also states that police spoke with the attending physician at the hospital, who said the 7-year-old suffered bruising to his face, back, and legs and also had bleeding on the brain. He remains hospitalized nearly two weeks after the attack, while the 3-year-old has since been released from hospital care.
