Montrell BrundidgeDELTONA, FL – Montrell Brundidge got himself into some trouble after he got upset with a 6-year-old boy and punished him with a weed-whacker.

Police were called to a home on Monday on a report of someone being hit with a lawnmower. When they arrived, they spoke with the boy who told them that 25-year-old Brundidge had used a weed-whacker on his leg, then showed them injuries to his left leg and ankle area.

He said Brundidge purposefully hit him with the gardening tool on purpose as punished for not listening and accidentally hitting another child.

Deputies took pictures of the boy’s injuries, which did not require medical attention, then went to Brundidge’s home. He admitted to police that he “made a bad decision” when he got upset with the boy for not listening and used a weed-whacker for discipline.

Montrell Brundidge was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse. He’s currently reflecting on his corporal punishment methods in the Volusia County Branch Jail without bond. Department of Children and Families are now investigating.

I would like to take this time to thank Brundidge for providing me with a “weed-whacker” tag. After 10 years of reporting on the various objects used to harm other individuals, this is the first story I could find on DD regarding the tool.

    Damn, weed-whackers hurt like a mo-fo on your ankle. Hate them damn things.

  • King A sshole

    My weed-whacker has steel blades on it, (it takes to long to string up those pieces of shit, so I had them made on a plasma table), can I use it on this asshole? I won’t kill him, I’ll make him wish I did.

  • I miss having access to a plasma table.

  • come_and_see

    Should use a weed whacker on his nuts.

  • Texas Ranger

    hmmm. And what can you offer in trade for access to a plasma table?

  • Quasimodem1969

    Reminds me of this.

  • Andy Deane

    Well, I’m just glad he put in the effort to look so “hard” in his mugshot. Nothing says tough-guy like abusing a 6 year old with a power tool!

  • itsknotme

    I say sue him for copyright infringement….

  • Buffettgirl

    Can we play Weed-Whacker-A-Mole with him? Please???

  • wastintime

    My discipline skills are boring. Timeout, grounding, confiscation of electronic devices, loss of privileges.
    I should expand my range.

  • modianos

    You goof! You always make me laugh: )

  • CT

    Try a power washer on bare feet – found that out the hard way.

  • JohnQknowitall

    A weed-whacker is a bad form of punishment? I cannot believe he came to that confusion without a boatload of excuses beforehand.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    Maybe I’m in a good mood, but I see nothing but positives in this story:

    -Didn’t require medical attention
    -A young man actually doing yard work
    -Did not resort to using a gun, hammer or bowling ball
    -Was upset over ANOTHER child getting hurt
    -Fulfills Morbid’s decade-plus dream of having a weed-whacker story on the site

    Life is beautiful!

    Glad it wasn’t a lawn mower

  • thebossessecretary

    Jesus, my own beloved dad would hit you with whatever he had in his posession. And believe me, we deserved it.

  • Vesper Bond

    This site has completely perverted my already sick mind. Upon reading the headline, the first thing I thought was that the man had used the weed-whacker on the kid, thus causing grave cuts.


  • thebossessecretary

    And trust me, once Dad kicked your ass for something you did, you didn’t do it again. Because he had no problems kicking your ass a second time if you proved to be stupid.

  • Leasha

    Skip-Its were the like the staple of my 90s childhood.

  • If we’re trading, it’s not gonna be for access to a plasma table…

  • Sejanus

    What a weed wackjob.

    …Hey someone had to say it.

  • Peggy McAvoy-Storer

    Personally, I loved my pogoball. My chilhood was mostly during the eighties, and my teen years were the 90’s. Great time to be a kid!
