Dad Charged For Beating Daughter's Boyfriend
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A Florida man says he was just defending his daughter. Raul Colon says he heard strange noises in his teenage daughter's bedroom. He found a stranger on her bed. He allegedly whacked him with a pipe and chased him out the door. Then he learned for the first time that his daughter had a boyfriend. Police charged the father with aggravated battery, even though fathers everywhere thought that whacking a boyfriend with a pipe was a father's prerogative. You're listening to Morning Edition.
