Dad Turns Son In To Police After Bus Stop Was Vandalised

A 13-year-old boy who smashed a bus shelter up was taken down to the local police station by his own dad.

The father was furious when he discovered his son was behind the vandalism. But, instead of giving him a slap on the wrist, he decided that he needed to be taught a proper lesson.

Arthur Ord, from Seaham in Durham, outed his son, Lucas, on a local Facebook page, before taking him to the police to be questioned officially.

The single dad posted a photo of his son at the scene. In the post, he assured neighbours and locals that he had not brought him up to behave in that way, saying that he was 'embarrassed and ashamed that he would do this'.

His post read: "There was a post put on Facebook tonight of kids doing this, I'm sad to one of the boys in this picture is my son.

"I feel so embarrassed and shamed that he would so this. I have not brought him up in this way and do apologise for his behaviour.

"He will not be seen out in a long time and I will await the police and he will accept his guilt. He has denied threatening some girls but had admitted to asking them to delete photos. Once again I'm so sorry for his actions."

People soon started replying to the post, commending his actions, with one saying it was 'parenting at its best'.

The 51-year-old added: "He's had a couple of little scraps recently and I need to do something to slow him down before it is too late.

"I won't allow him to run away and hide from what he's done, not on my watch."

Replying to another poster he said: "He will not be seen out for a long time. He is at a very impressionable age, and I worry unless he gets a hard lesson, what will happen?

"When I was young, you went over the knee and got a proper a***-slapping, but now you have to find another way as (parents') hands are tied by the law in so many ways."

A spokesperson for Durham Constabulary said: "A 13-year-old boy was interviewed by officers and admitted causing the damage.

"He will be referred to the Youth Offending Service."
