Dad shown on video kicking son down skateboard ramp will not be charged

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Florida man banned from a skate park last month after he was caught on video kicking his son down a skateboard ramp will not be charged, according to WTLV.

The April incident was captured on video by another skater and posted on social media. The Florida Department of Children and Families investigated the incident.

On Thursday, the State Attorney’s Office announced it decided not to charge Marcus Crossland for pushing his stepson off the skateboard ramp.

In a disposition statement obtained by WTLV, prosecutors said there was not enough evidence to charge Crossland with a crime.

The boy’s mother said she did not want her husband to be prosecuted, but does want him to learn that she does not approve of this type of “training.”
