SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A South Texas sheriff’s deputy has been accused of putting a kitchen knife to his son’s throat to quiet the boy.

Bexar (bayr) County sheriff’s Deputy Ronald Bailey turned himself in Thursday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He’s free on $25,000 bond and on administrative leave.

Prosecutors say Bailey was indicted Wednesday over a September incident at his San Antonio home while with his children. The deputy allegedly threatened to cut his son’s throat if the boy didn’t be quiet. The child wasn’t hurt but told police he thought his father would kill him.

The incident was reported after the children’s mother picked up the youngsters, who spent the weekend with their father.

An attorney for Bailey didn’t immediately return a message Friday to comment.
