PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. -- (WPIX) -- A Florida man is facing jail time after he allegedly forced his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son to eat feces, police said.
Don Reinhard, 56, is being charged with aggravated child abuse and battery of child by throwing feces, authorities in Panama City Beach said on Friday.
The arrest stems from a report indicating Reinhard was coercing the boy to eat his own feces as a “form of punishment” during his toilet training, police said.
Investigators were able to gather enough evidence to corroborate with the allegation. Reinhard awaits his court appearance.
