HOUSTON – A Houston judge Friday ordered a man to stay away from his son.
Christopher Levy was in court to face a charge of injury to a child. Prosecutors said he got so mad after a parent-teacher conference that he pulled his son out of class at Forest Brook Middle School and beat him.
Students and faculty witnessed the incident as it happened in the cafeteria of the school, which is located at 7525 Tidwell Road in north Houston.
A campus police officer had to pull Levy off his son.
The student was transported to a hospital, school officials said in a statement released Thursday.
“He was accompanied by his mother. As the safety of our students is important, the incident was reported to CPS,” the statement said.
Christopher Levy was charged with injury to a child under 15 and taken to jail. He was released on a $10,000 bond.
He’ll be assigned a lawyer at his next court appearance.
