UNNAMED DAD suffered from a "brain explosion" that caused him to throw his 9-year-old son repeatedly across the floor!
Hey, I'm just repeating what Daddy's attorney said, so stop laughing. And no, I don't think you'll find "brain explosion" in a medical dictionary because it's not a technical term. As you have probably concluded, it's basically a b---sh-- explanation for why Daddy is suddenly suffering from amnesia about the whole incident, that's all. Even though he's already pleaded guilty to assault. And don't ask me to explain why you would plead guilty to an incident you allegedly don't remember either. I have no idea.
Check out all the subtle clues about this incident taking place during court-ordered visitation with an abusive father. The boy told his STEPMOTHER about his sore wrist, BUT NO ACTION WAS TAKEN UNTIL HE WAS "BACK AT HOME " WITH HIS MOTHER.
But damn, if Daddy isn't getting coddled anyway despite his ridiculous and intelligence-insulting "brain explosion" story. Just 12 months probation for all that. And not a word on Daddy losing his visitation rights either.
Father throws boy, 9, across floor

A MAN suffered a “brain explosion” when he repeatedly threw his nine-year-old son across a room, including once onto a tiled floor, a court was told.
The 28-year-old Kalkie man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his child, was charged with assault causing bodily harm after his son went to Bundaberg Police Station to report him in October last year.
Bundaberg Magistrates Court was told the man picked the boy up with one hand on the front of his shirt and one gripping the back of the shirt and threw him 3m on a tiled floor between the kitchen and lounge on October 14.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said when the child got up, the man picked him up the same way and threw him into his room, where he landed on carpeted floor.
The third time the boy was thrown into the air and landed on his bottom on the floor.
Sgt Stevens told the court the nine-year-old felt pain in his left wrist and was “understandably” upset and crying following the attack.
The boy told his stepmother his wrist was sore, but it was not until he was back at home with his mother that action was taken and he went to the police station.
Sgt Stevens said the boy’s father, who pleaded guilty to the charge, told police he could not remember “being involved” in the incident.
Defence lawyer Mary Buchanan said her client had suffered a “brain explosion” and was embarrassed and remorseful about his actions.
Magistrate Jennifer Batts said matters of this nature were “always concerning”.
Mrs Buchanan asked that a conviction not be recorded because of the man’s future employment prospects.
“Given the serious nature of the matter, I think the conviction ought to be recorded,” Ms Batts said.
The magistrate sentenced the man to 12 months’ probation.
