Detroit, MI (AP) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Wayne
County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over
who should have custody of him.

The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge
initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and
regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him
more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When
the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy
cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning
that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them,
the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose
who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare
officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Detroit Lions
Football Team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating
anyone.
