Florida Man Arrested for Twisting 2-Year-Old Boy's Nipples Off

An inappropriate game of titty twister has lead to tragedy in New Port Richie, Florida. 28-year-old Thomas Matheson was arrested Tuesday night after twisting a two-year-old boy's nipples so hard they actually came off.

According to Bay News 9, Matheson was charged with watching the boy while his mother was off at work. Matheson admitted to playing rough with the shirtless boy, but after he squeezed and pulled on the boy's nipples he apparently didn't realize that he had literally pulled the skin off. Or so he told police.

About two hours later the boy's grandmother showed up and realized what had happened. The boy was taking to the hospital.

"Doctors say it is unlikely the nipples will grow back," reports Bay News 9.

Matheson was arrested on charges of child abuse.
