A couple are behind bars after they were caught on camera in a literal tug-of-war with their baby.

Britnie Haas and Elias Holt were seen fighting over their 11-month-old son in a hotel car park.

Haas is seen with the infant on her hip as Holt tries to snatch the boy away from her.

The mother is seen to strike her partner in the face as a second woman, identified as Holt’s aunt Melinda Ylinen, attempts to separate them, the New York Daily News reported

Later in the video, Holt is seen with the baby in his arms as Haas screams at him before violently snatching the child from him.

Holt is also seen lunging towards her.

Horrified Ylinen told Fox 13: “When I was saying to him, ‘Let me take the baby inside,’ that’s when she grabs the baby out of his arms so violently.

“The baby was really low on her hip, and he was bowing backwards, and I was afraid his back was going to snap.”

The fight happened outside of La Quinta in Orem, Utah, on Sunday, Fox reported.

The pair were later arrested on Friday.

Haas is facing charges of child abuse, domestic violence in the presence of a child and assault. Holt was arrested for a previous warrant, Fox reported.
