A “responsible gun owner” in Cleveland, Ohio is facing charges of menacing, child endangerment, and domestic violence following an incident involving one of his daughters, a dog, and his trusty “Second Amendment Stick” during a weekend visit at his Westside home on Bellaire Road.
Daniel Roman wanted to be sure that his nine-year old daughter would be nice to the dog — reeeally be sure. After she stepped on the dog’s tail, Roman allegedly pointed his gun at her, threatening to pull the trigger if she did it again.
Roman’s grandmother claims that she was present, and that no threats of any sort were made. However, police records reveal that he also told his seven-year old twins, “You tell anyone, I will hurt you and your sisters.”
The girls’ stepfather says that Roman pre-emptively called to dispute the claims. “He called us denying it so I knew there had to be some truth in it, he said. “Cause why would he call us if we didn’t ask him any questions?”
Roman maintains his innocence, and is fighting the charges.
