A father was arrested for confiscating his daughter’s phone.
Ronald Jackson from the US, was handcuffed and thrown in jail in 2012 after he took his 12-year-old daughter’s phone away because she sent a rude message about another woman.
The arrest was made about 2am after Jackson’s ex-wife, whose partner was a Grand Prairie police officer, found out.
“I was being a parent. You know, a child does something wrong, you teach them what’s right,” Jackson said.
“I didn’t want the police department telling me how to parent my child. It made no sense to me for them to show up and make a big deal out of something that was a small thing.
“I couldn’t believe they would go to this extent for a cell phone.”
On Tuesday, Dallas County Courthouse Judge Lisa Green ruled Jackson was not guilty due to a lack of evidence.
Seriously? Sounds like a bit of pay back maybe? I think he was a great parent and did exactly what was needed to be done.
