racketA Miami man accused of child abuse is using Florida’s Stand Your Ground self-defense law to try to prevail against charges that he hit a 5-year-old boy he says was “armed” with a tennis rackuet.

The accused is tennis instructor Osmailer Torres, who was arrested in July 2016 after Miami police said he took away the boy’s pint-size racket and hit him with it — giving the child a bruise on the right arm and a lump on his eyebrow.

Surveillance video captured the incident on the playground at Miami’s First Presbyterian Church on Brickell Avenue.

But Torres, 30, says the blow was inadvertent as he tried to rescue other students in harm’s way.  More
