JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A former Miami Dolphins wide receiver was arrested Wednesday on child abuse charges.
Mark Super Duper, 54, is accused of punching a juvenile for not listening to him about picking up his hat, according to a police report from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. In court on Thursday morning, Duper identified the juvenile as his son.
The report also states Duper grabbed the youth, picked him up several times and "slammed" him to the ground causing the child to lose consciousness for a short while.
According to the report, the altercation between Duper and the youth continued, ending only after Duper allegedly punched the youth while trying to ride away on a bike. The youth fell off the bike and Duper allegedly began to choke the youth.
A third party stepped in, the report detailed, and Duper and the youth were separated.
Duper was charged with child abuse and booked into the Duval County Jail.
