UPDATED: Shannon Marc McClure: Cops Say He Slammed Tot Head-First on Tiles

Editor's Update, June 30, 2014: This case was not prosecuted and Shannon Marc McClure was granted an expungement order for this arrest from the Harris County District Court.

Harris County sheriff's deputies say a Spring-area man intentionally dropped his common-law wife's three-year-old son on a tile floor.

Shannon Marc McClure, 43, is charged with reckless injury to a child, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Investigators say that McClure and the woman had been arguing, and McClure carried some of the woman's stuff outside and locked her out when she tried to retrieve it.

McClure, reportedly six-foot-three and 240 pounds, was alone inside with the child while the mom was pounding on the door and demanding to be let inside. McClure finally relented, and the woman discovered that the child had bumps on his neck and back. Deputies believe the child got them from McClure throwing him on a tile floor.

Back in 1987, McClure, an avid fan of Michael Berry, Dennis Miller, Michael Savage and just about every other right-wing yakker on the dial and/or tube, was convicted of criminal mischief in Montgomery County and sentenced to six months of probation. A weapons charge was dismissed.

He is currently free on a $15,000 bond.
