Tulsa, Okla. - Officers are called out to Country Lane Elementary after a student says his father punched him in the face.
Tulsa police say 33-year-old Bertheophilus Maurice Bailey was arrested Thursday afternoon because the child had a injury on his inside upper lip. The child informed a Department of Human Services worker at the school about the incident.
This isn't the first time Bailey has faced child abuse allegations. Court records show he received a deferred sentence in 2010.
Bailey is also a senior pastor at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Claremore.
