If you answered c), you just might be James Phillips of Portland, Maine, who did just that. He's now being charged with domestic violence. Make sure to keep an eye on your minutes, readers.

@lazerpenguin: What's up is that she did deserve it. I don't care how old the child is.. if she's still dependent on mommy and daddy, i say they have the right to set the rules an punishments (short of real abuse of course).

Cause the girl got off lucky that he didn't just kick her out and told her to fend for herself from now on! Then again it is still his fault for NOT spanking her enough when she was a child and teaching her respect.
