Ian Douglas James Gordon is accused of punching ten week old baby Cruz outside the Saint Hotel in March, and has pleaded not guilty.

He's now on trial in Perth Magistrates Court, and today took the stand in his own defence, where he said he'd questioned earlier that day why anyone would bring a child to a pub.

Curtis MacLean admits throwing a punch after he says he felt the thud of his baby being hit - then stepped back to check on his child while a fight broke out.

Ian Gordon admitted consuming 7-8 pints of beer in about 2 and a half hours but said he wasn't drunk - just jolly.

Yesterday the boys' father choked up as he described how he felt his newborn son being hit. He admits throwing a punch at Ian Gordon but says that was after the baby was struck.
