Houston Dad Arrested For Helping Daughter Fight Classmate
Darren Keith Patrick has his limits — he didn’t actually throw any blows he just held the 13-year-old victim up against a fence while his daughter kicked and hit her with a shoe.
Patrick is all about being a tag-team parent. Police from the Houston Independent School District say he followed the girl home from school on a bike, while his daughter pursued on foot. Once he caught up with the teen, he got off the bike and pushed the girl up against a chain-link fence as his daughter commenced with the attack.
Surveillance video caught Patrick and his daughter following the girl, and a witness recounted seeing the 45-year-old father detaining the girl.
Court documents state that the victim tried to defend herself but couldn’t break free from Patrick.
He was charged with injury to a child and is reportedly still being held on bail. No word on what happened to his daughter.
