A College Station man being held in the Brazos County Jail since Feb. 16 now faces charges connected to assaulting two children on Super Bowl Sunday.

According to College Station police, authorities were contacted Feb. 19 by the guardian of two brothers, ages 7 and 4. The boys said on Feb. 3, Bradley Dean Smith, 32, had hurt them while they were at his home to watch the football game. Smith is accused of punching the 4-year-old in the stomach, then grabbing the older boy and throwing him to the ground before hitting his chest. The boys said they were afraid to come forward, but did so after Smith’s arrest on unrelated charges.

Smith now faces two charges of injury to a child, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $10,000 in fines. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $31,000 bond.
