What would you do? If you have ever lived with a testy teenager, you know how sneaky they can be even with all the rules and boundaries you have set for them. In this case a man from West Reading PA found his daughter’s boyfriend in his apartment, hiding in a bathroom.
According to the story:
“A surprised father assaulted his daughter’s male friend and chopped off his hair after he found them alone together, police said. Reginald Hardy, 38, of West Reading, has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault, terroristic threats and other offenses.
“I’m a father and I’m looking out for my daughter. That’s it,” said Hardy, who told 69 News he is remorseful for his actions.”
He admitted that he definitely lost it when he found out his daughter had this guy sneaking around in his own home.
“I just see people running and he locked himself in the bathroom, and then we got into a little scuffle,” said Hardy.
Hardy allegedly punched the man in his face and dragged him by his hair into the kitchen where he chopped off the guys deadlocks with a knife. When the guy started to run, Hardy told him he shouldn’t because he had a gun and would shoot him in the back.
“That might have been the maddest I ever got because I literally just seen red,” said Hardy. “I think he has the right to do it because a father needs to protect his daughters,” said Jo Boltz, who agreed with Hardy’s actions. “
Hardy cooperated with the police and apologized, but he insists that he deserves an apology as well because the 19 year old man disrespected him.
“I want to apologize for my actions, but I believe he owes me an apology, too, because he knows he shouldn’t have been there,”
Hardy is set to be in court as early as next week for the incident. What do you guys think? I think he definitly committed a crime because assault is not legal, however, well I will just say this, there is only one person in the world I would go to jail for and that is my child. Comment below!
