A father flew into a rage and knocked out his son’s tooth because he played with his dog, according to police in Arizona.

Peoria police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Macaiah Gunderson after being accused of beating his pre-teen son.

Gunderson has been charged with one count of child abuse with intent.

He was booked into jail, pending a bail hearing.

According to the police investigation, on Friday, the boy got into trouble at school.

He was sent to the principal’s office and Gunderson was called to the school.

The boy became fearful and ran away from school.

The principal called the police and they found the boy in the street.

The boy told the police that his father regularly beats him.

Two days ago, Gunderson slapped the boy in the back of the head because he played with the family dog.

As a result, the boy’s nose began bleeding.

Gunderson then pushed the boy’s head into a doorknob.

This caused the boy’s tooth to break.
