An 18-year-old LaPorte man could face up to three years in prison for what police called a physical assault of a 7-year-old boy over a basketball.

Xuan Logan II is charged with battery, a Class D felony.

According to police, Logan and the boy Monday evening were playing basketball on Stone Lake Drive when Logan kicked the ball into the street.

The boy became upset and Logan responded by yelling obscenities at him then shoving him to the muddy pavement, police said.

If convicted, Logan might have to serve anywhere from a six-month to three-year sentence.
