Minnesota Dad Points AK-47 At 15-Year-Old Daughter For Bad Grades
A St. Paul man threatened his daughter with an AK-47 rifle because she was getting two B’s in school rather than straight A’s, according to a criminal complaint filed Friday.
Via Fox News Twin Cities:
According to the charges, 52-year-old Kirill Bartashevitch recently purchased the AK-47 due to fears that such weapons would be banned under President Obama’s push for gun control legislation.
St. Paul police learned of the Jan. 13 incident after Bartashevitch’s daughter sent a text message to a Central High School classmate, saying her father pointed an AK-47 at her. The message was seen by the classmate’s mother, who reported it to a school social worker.
In an interview with the social worker, the victim said they were arguing about her grades when she swore at her father and said she “hated” him. At that point, Bartashevitch grabbed his newly-purchased gun and pointed it at his daughter.
The girl’s mother said she stepped between the two, and that Bartashevitch pushed her to the ground and pointed the gun at both of them. The daughter said she wasn’t scared because she didn’t think the gun was loaded.
Bartashevitch admitted having a physical confrontation with his wife and daughter, and admitted to pointing the gun at both of them. He said the gun was not loaded and that he checked the chamber before pointing it at them.
Would you rather get spanked for bad grades or a gun in your face? We thought so.
