Dad in clown mask shot at while chasing daughter through neighborhood

Dad in clown mask shot at while chasing daughter through neighborhood

Authorities say a father scaring his daughter results in a chase around the neighborhood and a gunshot and charges against two Boardman, Ohio men.

Vernon Barrett Jr chose to scare his daughter as a way to discipline her for behavioral issues, according to the police report.

The father, identified as Vernon Barrett Jr., told police he chased his daughter to discipline her for behavioral issues, rather than spanking her.

'Barrett said that he made a decision to use the clown mask into scaring her to behave, ' responding officer Joseph O'Grady wrote in an incident report obtained by the Washington Post. "It was completely unexpected but what else were we to do?"

Police say the girl was so terrified she jumped into a stranger's vehicle and then into a stranger's apartment on Saturday night, according to Fox6.

Mental disorders, poor diets making us sick
Sugary drinks are unsafe for health and we need to know about healthy compounds in diets that will provide protection, he said. Currently, the average global life expectancy for women is 75.3 years, while men can expect to see 69.8 years on the planet.

Before police could arrive, the girl fled her creepy pursuer by running into the apartment of 48-year-old Dion Santiago. The woman then called 911 and said the man in the mask had pulled the girl from the auto.

This comes as the 6-year-old's mother was reportedly jailed for child endangerment - in allegedly breaking four of the girl's ribs.

Santiago turned off the lights of the home and "looked out his apartment window and observed Barrett standing outside of the building with a clown mask on", the police report states. Santiago was charged with using weapons while intoxicated, the report said.

Barrett was arrested and charged with child endangerment and inducing panic. It's unclear whether they have obtained lawyers. And a weekend incident in the Youngstrown area won't help that reputation.

He added: "Hopefully it doesn't restart that drama again".
