When the pre-teen son of a Connecticut Obama worshiper wouldn’t sit still for Obama’s boring and long-winded State of the Union Speech, last month, his dad “overreacted” by hitting him in the face with a coffee mug, sending to the emergency room with a nose injury.
Mohamed Shohan, 49, of 55 Mather Road, Stamford, was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and risk of injury to a child. He was released after posting $5,000 bond and will be arraigned on the charges at state Superior Court in Stamford Thursday.
Youth Bureau Sgt. Joseph Kennedy said police were made aware of the assault on Jan. 27 when the youth was brought to Stamford Hospital for treatment of an injury to his face.
When police interviewed the 11-year-old boy, he told them that his father recorded Obama’s State of the Union address on Jan. 25 and the two sat down to watch it at home the next day, Kennedy said.
When the boy kept acting out, the father lost his temper and grabbed a coffee mug that his son was holding in his hand and hit him in the face with it, causing a bruise to the bridge of his nose.
When interviewed by police, Shohan could not explain how his son was injured. Over the past three weeks, police applied for and obtained an arrest warrant for Shohan.
