Father Arrested For Child Abuse

Michael Davis

Kids say the darndest things and sometimes they do things that make you want to chuck a coffee mug at them, which is a felony.

On November 10th, sometime near 12:09 PM, Officers with the North Platte Police Department were called to the 100 block of West William Ave because of a disturbance.

The suspect, Michael Davis, told the officers that his teenager was ‘acting in an uncontrollable fashion’ which during an argument, allegedly struck Davis, leaving a minor injury.

The teen was interviewed and according to the NPPD, Davis allegedly threw a coffee cup at his teenager, which caused injury.

Authorities say that Davis threw the cup at the teen which followed by the teen striking Davis.

Michael Davis was arrested and booked into the Lincoln County Detention Center, charged with child abuse.

The teen was cited and released for being an uncontrollable juvenile and 3rd degree assault.

    Why should any parent have to put up with being treated like Micheal has been treated by the uncrontrollable teen? I don’t condone child abuse, but when you can’t defend yourself something isn’t right. No matter what you do, you lose.

    Daniel is a good kid. Everyone makes mistakes. Who are any of you to judge him or anyone in there family? You should all look at yourselves before criticizing anyone. Keep your head up Daniel you know the truth and that’s all that matters!

    Here’s a thought how about kids stop arguing, talking etc. to parents, who provide a home for you to live, food to eat,etc. how about kids learn respect and then they won’t have a coffee cup thrown at them; not saying it was right but had he turned you over on his knee ans spanked your butt he would still be in trouble. The same old saying holds true “just wait til you have kids”

      I completely agree with you!!! The problem now days is that kids are disrespectful and just plain RUDE! If I would have acted like any of these kids that are on here for being in trouble, I would not have lived to see the next day! I will NOT have my children act like this! They do and I will be in trouble just like this parent!
