A father-son trip to the skate park has landed one man at the center of a storm.

A Florida man is being investigated by the Department of Children and Families after video of him pushing his six-year-old son down a skateboard ramp went viral over the weekend.

The incident occurred Saturday at Kona Skate Park in Arlington.

The park operator told the man — identified as Marcus Crossland — to leave after the episode took place:

Unfortunately parents get so enthusiastic about their kids and their abilities in skateboarding, or baseball, or football or whatever and sometimes they take it a little too far.”

Thirteen-year-old Ryan Stephens posted the video on Instagram and said he approached Crossland about why he was getting so tough on his son.

“He said, ‘Because he needs to learn,’” Ryan said, “I was like, ‘Pushing him down is not teaching him how to drop in.’ And then he said, ‘Do you think you can raise him better than me?’ and I said yes.”

Crossland and his son are known in the area. The boy is considered a skating prodigy who is called Dino the Dinosaur.
