A Coralville man has been charged with putting a minor child in danger.

Daniel Brosnan, 54, Coralville, was charged Wednesday with child endangerment with no injury.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office complaint, on Wednesday, officials were called to Brosnan's home because of a 911 hang-up. When police officials arrived, Brosnan allegedly appeared intoxicated and had a large cut on his scalp. Brosnan stated he got in an argument with his 17-year-old son, the complaint said.

According to the complaint, his son and wife both stated he came home drunk and started cursing at his son. Brosnan allegedly grabbed his son's neck and threw him over a coffee table. His son has mental disabilities, according to the complaint.

Child endangerment with no injury is considered an aggravated misdemeanor.
