PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. — A Florida man was charged with child abuse after he allegedly forced his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son to eat feces as punishment while potty training.
In a Facebook post, Panama City Beach police say 56-year-old Don Reinhard was forcing the child to eat his own feces “as a form of punishment” during the potty training process. Authorities were able to gather enough evidence to later support the allegation.
He is charged with aggravated child abuse and battery of a child by throwing feces.
