HOUSTON, TX – A Houston man may have slipped up really bad! Harris County authorities charged 26-year-old Jonathan Walker with injury to a child. They say he allegedly beat up an 8-year-old boy because he put his slippers on the wrong feet.

It happened back in October. That’s when, according to police reports, Houston Police officers showed up to an apartment complex after they got a call about an injured child. Police say they found the boy in bad shape. He was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital for treatment. Medical records show the boy suffered from a bruised and swollen eye, belt marks, extension cord marks and possible cigarette burns.

But now, Walker may be the one getting burned. Overnight, he went before a judge and now he’s expected back in court after the New Year.
