Tulsa, Okla. — A Tulsa father is accused of punching and choking his teenage son.
Police say 39-year-old Terry Landrum was arrested late Friday night on one count of child abuse by injury.
The 13-year-old son says the incident happened around 7 p.m., near 65th and Boulder.
Landrum is accused of holding the boy down with his knee and punching him in the face. The teen says his father punched him multiple times before also choking him.
Police did find evidence of the abuse, so he was taken to a Tulsa hospital where it was determined he has injuries to his left ear drum.
Landrum was released from the Tulsa County Jail on Saturday after posting bail.
