Landlord Spanks Tenant Over Late Rent

Usually if you’re late on rent, you get slapped with a fine or evicted. Well, an Ohio tenant definitely got slapped. His landlord took matters into his own hands…literally! Ron Kronenberger, 53, has been charged with assault after spanking the tenant over his late rent.

Kronenberger told police he had warned the tenant, who owed him $2,800 in back rent, “If you’re going to act like a child, I’m going to treat you like one,” before he whipped  the 29-year-old man on his bare bottom four times with a belt, leaving “little marks”  on his behind,  Fox8.com is reporting. The tenant stated he was scared and “just wanted to get it over with”.

This story is wrong on so many levels. Why on earth would you “spank” a tenant? Why would you allow someone to spank you? Both of them should rent a room in a looney bin.

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.
