A Houston man has been charged with injury to a child after police say he threw the shattered pieces of a Nintendo game console at his 12-year-old son.

According to court documents, on January 7, Paul Anderson Newman, 45, was angry at his son for a bad behavior report from school. Aldine ISD police say Newman used a wrench to destroy a Nintendo console and threw the pieces at the child, hitting him in the back of the head and shoulder.

Newman then dragged the victim by his shirt and began hitting him in the face with open and closed fists, according to the court charging document.

When the child went to school, teachers noticed his injuries and notified police.

Aldine ISD Police say Newman admitted to losing his temper and hitting the child. Newman was arrested and released on a $5,000 bond.
