Mason Lee manslaughter accused tried to flee courtroom

A TEEN accused of killing toddler Mason Lee was involved in a dramatic courtroom scuffle after he allegedly tried to jump the dock and flee.

Mason Lee death: More charges laid by police

Hodson has been charged with manslaughter, along with the little boy's mother, Anne Maree Lee, and her former partner, William Andrew O'Sullivan.

They have been ­accused of failing to seek medical attention for Mason who suffered for days with "head to toe" injuries - including a ruptured intestine - before dying at his Caboolture home.

Hodson was granted bail in August 2016, two months after the toddler's death, but was convicted of breaching bail conditions in January. He was brought into Caboolture Magistrates Court this week, charged with another four counts of breach of bail, resulting in further convictions.

Told he would be jailed, Hodson allegedly tried to escape. He was restrained by a court officer and it is understood he sustained a wrist injury.

He now faces charges of attempted escape and resisting public officers and will return to court next month.
