It’s not uncommon for parents to spank their children when the kids have misbehaved. However, Houston Alexander has his own unique strategy when it comes to disciplining teenagers and it involves a lesson in the sweet science.
Alexander was ticketed last week for misdemeanor child abuse after police were called to his residence in Omaha, Nebraska to find his sixteen year old son with a “slightly bloody nose” and some internal pain. Upon further investigation it was revealed the 39-year old, a former UFC light heavyweight, had become upset with his son over some inappropriate activity on social networking outlet Facebook and demanded the two of them box as a result.
Essentially the charge indicates Alexander knowingly put his child, a minor, in a dangerous situation.
