    GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A Gainesville father has been arrested for hitting his daughter with a pizza slice.

    The 38-year-old man was arrested early Friday on a charge of child abuse without great harm, a third-degree felony. The man's name was being withheld to protect the identity of the victim.

    Deputy Nick Vickers says the man used racist and sexist terms when he asked his daughter to turn off her computer, and she fired back with some crude language of her own.

    Vickers says the father "intentionally threw a slice of pizza at the victim, striking her in the back of the neck, against her will."

    The girl, whose age was not available, called 911 and her father was arrested.

    Well ... it is an act of needless violence toward a minor.

    He threw a slice of pizza? What ever happened to a good old fashioned slap upside the head?

    Hardley, and she also provoked the situation, it's not like he beat her and that is what that charge is designed for. This was probabably some dick head cop that thinks his shit dont stink who made this arrest.

    I guarantee when it hits court it will either be dismissed or plead down to a ticketable misdemenor like disooderly conduct or criminal mischief(Wich I think is a funny charge itself.).

    That guy is definitely an asshole, although in the grand scheme of things a single incident of bad words and flying pizza probably shouldn't be a felony. I wonder how much more there is to this story.

    Hmm ... you do realize that children mimic their parents behavior ... perhaps he was usually like that and she was just being like him ... thus the provocation was a mirror of his own behavior. When the court case finishes we'll see, there are too many unknowns at this point, like the history of the family.

    That's the problem with kids today, some of them really just need a good old fashioned ass kicking.

    I know just as many parents (usually those of the same kids) that need it more. ;)

    I am not saying your wrong, but seriously this is laughable, a Felony for throwing food? What has our society come to, people are afraid to even spank their kids for fear of the kid dialing 911 to say their abused, and I have actually seen that happen first hand.

    I totally agree with that too. I hate it when I have some smart ass 14 year old in custody for shoplifting and you call the parents to some get them and they start acting worse then the kids.
