Singing father proved annoying to son, who punched his father in the face

A 15-year-old Hastings juvenile was arrested after assaulting his father at 4:17 p.m. Dec. 27 in the 100 block of Second Street. The son had asked his father for money and the father complied. That's when the father began singing, which bothered the child.

The child then hit his father in the face with a closed fist. He was transported to the juvenile detention center.
