WEIRD NEWS: Shooting for Perfect Grades
A Minnesota man won't be getting any Father of the Year awards after threatening to blow his daughter's head off when she came home with two B's on her report card instead of the straight A's he'd ordered her to achieve.
Kirill Bartashevitch, who'd recently bought an AK-47 assault weapon due to his fears about gun control legislation being implemented, allegedly pointed the rifle at the teenager and threatened her life. She said she wasn't afraid because she was pretty sure it wasn't loaded, but after she texted a friend about what happened cops were called in to investigate.
Bartashevich, who works for the Minneapolis school district, was charged with making terrorist threats. He admitted that he'd threatened his daughter and didn't apologize for his actions. (LA Times)
