News

"Knock him out! Knock him out!"

A Hilsborough County, Florida dad has been arrested after video surfaced this week of him cheering on his son during a violent street fight. The dad, 41-year-old Philip Struthers, was charged with felony child abuse and a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a child, the Smoking Gun reports.

In the video, filmed last Thursday afternoon, Struthers's son "Jake" can be seen brawling shirtless with another boy. The fight was apparently over a girl. Philip can be heard in the background yelling, “Knock him out, Jake!” “Punch his eyes out!” “Slam his head on the ground!” and “Punch him, punch him!”

The video is below:
