    A Yelm-area father reportedly upset with his 16-year-old daughter because she went to Puyallup without parental approval Saturday night, is accused of forcing her to suit up in armor and then beating her with a wooden sword for two hours, until she could no longer stand, according to the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office.

    The father, identified as 5-foot 10, 300-pound Freemon Everett Seay, 38, is a Renaissance fair enthusiast. He also donned armor and gave her a wooden sword before the assault, Thurston County Sheriff’s Lt. Greg Elwin said.

    “This is extremely uncommon, I’ve never seen anything like this, ” Elwin said.

    You might mock him for being 300 pounds at 5'10 but beating someone with a wooden sword for two hours does require a bit of stamina.

    And since I want to be the first to do this

    Good for him. His daughter needed correcting and he took care of it.

    I fail to see why this is illegal... Fathers and sons box some times, some times it's as a measure of punishment, or discipline. The dad isn't try to hurt the kid when it's done the healthy way, it's just a method of getting the kid to loosen up, realize thinks aren't as important as he's making them out to be in his head, etc.

    If you put iron armor on the kid and use a plastic sword you're not trying to hurt them. Wear them out like a coach forcing you to do wind-sprints, sure, but what's wrong with that?

    Yeah, I'd say that was a bit extreme.

    EDIT:

    This story is better:

    PS: after he bested her on the field of battle, he took her roughly from behind in the manner of a common farm animal.

    That's called good parenting.
