A 21-year-old man from Auburn, Wash., has been charged with felony assault after slapping a 10-year-old boy so hard that he knocked the kid’s tooth out. The kid was causing a ruckus at a movie theater. According to Yong Hyun Kim, he approached the boy, his mother, and a friend and asked them to keep the volume down and to stop throwing popcorn at the screen.
When they laughed at him, continuing to be loud, he snapped and smacked flames out of the kid. The boy suffered a bloody nose in addition to the lost tooth. When Kim was told how old the kid was, he hung his head in shame because he thought he was “a grown man.” You can't distinguish a 4th grader from a grown-ass man?
Kim was slapped with second-degree assault and could serve several months in jail if convicted.
