uncleGarret Wright (pictured) took being upset over a child’s poor grades to an entirely off-the-chart level! The Tempe, Ariz., man was arrested and booked on child abuse and assault charges Saturday for allegedly wringing his nephew’s neck over the child’s below average academic performance, according to WBTV.

Wright, who has denied the charges against him, told police he grabbed his nephew by both arms, spun him around, and then grabbed him about the chest for looking at him funny. However, the young boy, whose age and name has not been disclosed, reportedly confided in a friend that Wright had choked, punched and slapped him for bringing home grades that were not up to par.

The child also revealed to his unnamed friend that Wright had choked him so severely he could not breathe at one point during the alleged assault. The friend contacted authorities after the boy recounted the scuffle he had with his uncle.

When police investigators arrived on the scene, they saw evidence of red markings on the child’s neck, right shoulder and left eyebrow. They also noticed that the 48-year-old Wright, who is the child’s legal guardian, reeked of alcohol.

Police summoned Child Protective Services who entered Wright’s home to remove the child from the premises. The boy was placed into the foster care system.

Wright, who is waiting arraignment, remains behind bars.
