A dad from Hampton Township in Michigan is facing prison after allegedly beating up his daughter with frozen bacon of all things.
Jonathan Powell, 45, reportedly hit his 11-year-old daughter over the head several times with frozen bacon then pushed her, which caused her to trip over and bang her head on a chair.
The girl’s mum called police after she came home from her dad’s with a bruise on her left cheek.
Jonathan denies hitting the girl and claims he was boiling water in the kitchen when she walked in to get something. She fell over an open dishwasher door and that’s how she got her bruise.
He has been charged with third-degree child abuse and faces up to two years in jail if found guilty.
If he’s found guilty, we reckon he should be sentenced to three years in prison – two for hitting his daughter and one for misusing bacon.
