Via Glenn, we have a story about either an out-of-control father or an out-of-control daughter:
LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A man accused of slapping his teenage daughter across the face has been charged with child abuse.
Police were alerted Thursday when a woman brought her 13-year-old daughter to CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia.
The woman told police that the girl’s father had assaulted her.
According to police, Charles Edward Earnhardt Jr. was arguing with the girl because she was not making tea fast enough.
Earnhardt reportedly threw some things across the room and broke some glasses.
When the teen refused to clean up the mess, Earnhardt allegedly slapped her across the face.
If the father was the Earnhardt throwing things and breaking glasses that puts this in a much different light than if the daughter was the Earnhardt throwing things.
We may sort this out some day, but not tonight.
