Angry Dad Attacks Naked Boy in Daughter's Room With Metal Pipe
Saturday, September 13, 2008
DELTONA, Fla. — An angry Deltona father whacked his teenage daughter's boyfriend with a metal pipe after finding the boy naked in his daughter's room.
Authorities say the father, 45, didn't even know his daughter had a boyfriend or that the youngster had been sneaking into the home for more than a year.
When he heard noises coming from his daughter's bedroom Thursday morning and saw a stranger standing naked on the girl's bed, he swung a metal pipe. He then chased the teen out the front door and called police.
The boy was taken to the hospital where doctors closed a head wound with staples.
The father was charged with aggravated battery on a child and bonded out on $10,000.
They charged this man with a crime, for what! If their was a naked guy in my daughter's room I'd swing the pipe first and ask questions later. I don't know any father that wouldn't do the same. He didn't even know that his daughter was seeing this guy so in his mind it was an intruder.
Admittedly the fact his daughter didn't think she could tell her dad she had a boyfriend doesn't speak well for their relationship. Note I said tell him she had a boyfriend, not what she was doing, no father wants to know about that.
I imagine this case will get dropped as soon as everyone calms down. I would imagine the parents of the boy in the hospital probably wanted the father charged, but I hope they drop their complaint. This man did nothing anyone else wouldn't have done in the same situation. Please Lord if I ever have kids make them all boys.
