A Tennessee man was arrested for choking his 14-year-old daughter after he discovered that she had posted naked photos of herself to her Snapchat.
Christian Amason, 45, was turned in on New Year’s Day by his daughter, who told police that she had been abused, cops said in a report obtained by a local news outlet.
Amason’s daughter told police that she initially had argued about her social media presence with her mother, who threatened to spank her. But when her father intervened, he started hitting her all over, slapping her upper and lower body and leaving her with bruises and red marks.
The daughter ran, but her father followed, grabbing her by the throat and choking her, police said. She then called her older sister at midnight to go to the police station and file a report.
Amason—who police said admitted to the crimes—was charged with abuse and neglect. Police also informed child protective services about the incident.
