Dad Hasbro-ken the Faith

Traill County (N.D.) sheriff’s deputies were called out to see Brian Cutshall, 40, after his son called 911 to report a domestic dispute. According to court documents, the boy told responding officers that he had gone upstairs when his parents started arguing. When he heard screaming, he came down to find his mother on the floor with a bloody nose. Both parents claimed the other had hit them in the face with a wine bottle. When a deputy told the boy he did a good job calling 911, the boy said his father had told him he would kill him if he didn’t call. Cutshall and his wife both allegedly smelled strongly of alcohol. Cutshall was arrested, and pleaded not guilty to a single count of Class C felony terrorizing, and the boy was taken into protective custody. The point of contention in the argument: a game of Yahtzee. (MS/Fargo Forum) ...Poor kid just had to use his Chance when he rolled the dice for parents.
