A Tira man and his daughter were both arrested by Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office after an altercation that involved the daughter allegedly knocking two of her father’s front teeth out.
According to HCSO reports, the argument started at the Tira man’s residence on County Road 4575 when he complained that his granddaughter was riding a 4-wheeler too fast on his property. Both parties lived on the same property but in separate residences. They were also arguing over objects that had been left in the yard at the property, according to the report.
He claimed that his daughter was chest bumping him and that he pushed her to get her off of him. The daughter claims he pushed her to the ground and then stepped over her. The father claimed that she then struck him in the mouth and knocked out two of his front teeth to stand up for her boyfriend. The daughter admitted to striking him but claims it was for self-defense.
Both subjects were arrested and charged with Assault Causing Body Injury To A Family Member. They were booked into Hopkins County Jail and later released on bond.
