12-12-12 turned dangerous as officers in Texas said a dad carved a star-like image into his six-year-old's back.
Brent Bartel called 911 after police said he held his son down and carved a pentagram into his back with a box cutter.
Bartel said he wanted to mark the quote "holy day."
The boy is recovering this morning.
