PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man accused of holding a plastic pen to his son and threatening to throw him out a window has been sentenced to a year in prison.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 33-year-old Brenden Michael Fairbanks was sentenced Tuesday.

He had pleaded guilty last month to attempted aggravated assault

Fairbanks was arrested after he allegedly threatened his then 8-year-old son at a Phoenix apartment complex on Dec. 3, 2013.

Authorities say Fairbanks was clothed in camouflage shorts and holding his young son in his arms, pointing a 12- to 14-inch plastic pen at him.

Fairbanks refused Phoenix police officers’ orders to put the boy down and broke a glass window with his son’s feet as he tried to throw him out the window onto the grass three feet below.
