Lawrence Roberts - Jailed After Attempting To Cut Off Son's Cast With Circular Saw….. With Expected Results

Coral Springs, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Lawrence Roberts, a 33-year-old Florida man was jailed Sunday after he allegedly tried to cut his son's cast off with a circular saw.... and, well....you can probably guess what happened.

According to Coral Springs police, Roberts had the bright idea of removing his 15-year-old son's purple cast using a construction grade circular saw.

Roberts reportedly brought the saw over to the home where his son lives, fetched it from the truck and began cutting. The attempt reportedly didn't go so well.

Investigators say the boy needed emergency surgery after Roberts managed to cut off part of the boy's right thumb. The boy's right index finger was almost entirely cut off as well.

The teen was first taken to the Coral Springs Medical Center, then was transported to a Fort Lauderdale facility for emergency surgery to repair his thumb. Medical personnel also removed the cast.

Roberts was booked into the Broward County Jail and charged with aggravated child abuse. He was released after posting $7,500 bond.
