Dad forced son to drink alcohol until he passed out : Police

Police say an East Tennessee father forced his son to drink alcohol Saturday night until he passed out as a punishment after he caught the 15-year-old drinking.

Witnesses told police that the Tennessee man forced his son to play the game after catching him drinking.

Some of the witnesses then left the home, but when they came back, the teen was lying unresponsive on the kitchen floor.

The people tried to take the 15-year-old boy to the hospital but Hughes began to fight with them.

The witnesses then poured the boy into the back seat of a car and called the police.

When officers arrived the teen had no pulse, they performed CPR until paramedics arrived.

He was flown to hospital for treatment and spent time on a ventilator.

Officers said Hughes was “clearly intoxicated” and “couldn’t keep his balance” when they arrived.

Hughes was charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect as well as contributing to the delinquency of a child.

“We’re going to prosecute it to the fullest,” said Police Chief Eddie Byrum, “We’d like to use this as an example where if anybody else is out there and thinks this is how they’re going to govern their children or direct them, we will put a stop to it.”
