Punishments for Insubordiantion Ain't What They Used to Be

A Pardeeville man is expected to appear in court Wednesday after he was arrested this weekend on suspicion of restraining his 7-year-old son with tape after the boy refused to wear a Green Bay Packers jersey.

The 36-year-old man was taken into custody on Saturday on suspicion of causing mental harm to a child, false imprisonment and domestic disorderly conduct, according to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said that the boy's mother called police after the child refused to wear the jersey and the father restrained and tied him with tape for about one hour. The jersey was also taped to the boy during the time, authorities said.

The father is expected to appear in Columbia County Circuit Court on Wednesday.
