Speaking of terrorizing children, a Watertown couple is sitting in the Codington County Jail on drug, assault, and child abuse charges after sitting around the apartment with a loaded shotgun getting drunk and growing pot in front of their four-month-old baby.
Oh yeah, and the dad apparently committed some racist violence in front of his child on the Hispanic officer who made the arrest:
Police say [Adam] Remington became violent during his arrest, punching an officer in the face. Investigators say the officer was not seriously hurt.
“It was racially-motivated based on the fact that it was a Hispanic officer and the gentleman is not from our area. He said he’s from Arizona and he made some pretty vulgar comments toward our officer,” [WPD Detective Sgt. Chad] Stahl said.
The couple’s 4-month old child, who was there as everything unfolded, is now in the protective custody of the state [Perry Groten, “Watertown Police: Assault on Officer Was Racially Motivated,” KELO-TV, 2019.10.17].
Drunk, doing and maybe dealing dope, having a loaded gun in the house, and being racist—it’s tough to be a worse dad than that.
