GOLDEN GATE, Fla. - Hog tied and threatened with a taser-like device! That's what the Collier County Sheriff's Office says a Golden Gate man did to a child.
Neighbors of Jon Parrish say his 15-year-old daughter was always running away, and he had a difficult time controlling her.
The teen was picked up by the Lee County Sheriff's Office in May. She told deputies that just days earlier her father had zip-tied her to the bed and shocked her for running away. The teen says he even threatened to use a dog collar to chain her up.
Neighbors to the family think the girl may have embellished some of the story, and Parrish only did what was necessary as a parent.
Parrish, who is a Naples lawyer, is being charged with two felony charges of child abuse and false imprisonment.
