Water fights can be so much fun on a hot summer day however, after losing a water balloon fight with a 9yr old, the appropriate response is NOT to punch the kid in the face…
SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) – A northeastern Pennsylvania man faces charges he assaulted a 9-year-old boy after losing a water balloon fight.
Investigators say 33-year-old Joe Mongeon started the water fight with the child but became angry when the boy hit him with a water balloon on Saturday in Scranton. Witnesses told police Mongeon chased the child down, pushed him to the ground and began kicking him.
The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports Mongeon also allegedly assaulted the child’s mother after she tried to intervene.
Mongeon is charged with two counts of simple assault and harassment. He was released Monday on $5,000 bail.
