Tantrum

Andrew Mizsak Sr. of Bedford, Ohio, was fed up and called police on his son, Andrew Jr. His son wouldn’t clean up his room, he said, and when told to, Andrew Jr. threw a plate of food across the room. The police report noted that the father told the responding officer “Andrew [Jr.] is 270 pounds and he can’t fight him, that they do everything for Andrew and he doesn’t even pay rent.” However, the report continued, “Andrew ...was crying uncontrollably and stated he would comply.” — and case closed. Andrew Sr. is 63 years old. His son is 28 — and is a member of the Bedford School Board and a freelance political consultant. Andrew Sr. refused to press charges because “I don’t want to ruin his political career.” Andrew Jr. commented: “I know this looks bad.” (RC/Cleveland Plain Dealer) ...Well, at least he’s not completely delusional.
