CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (CBSMiami.com) – A Coral Springs father has been arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse after he tried to remove his son’s cast with a 10-inch circular saw.

When Lawrence Roberts, 33, tried to remove the cast Sunday, he ended up cutting off more than the cast.

Roberts cut off the top of his son’s right thumb, the middle of his right index finger and left a 3-inch long cut in the web of the hand between the right thumb and index finger, according to Coral Springs Police.

Under police questioning, Roberts admitted to using the saw and said the saw is usually used to cut work materials at Roberts’ job in construction.
