A father has been arrested for allegedly pointing a loaded gun against the head of his 9-year-old son because the latter drank the last can of Dr. Pepper in their house in Louisiana, United States.

The boy’s mother afterward filed a domestic aggravated battery complaint to the police, which led to Kinnaird’s arrest on New Year’s Day.

The boy told investigators that his father became upset with him for drinking the last can of said soda in their home, as per report.  A .32 caliber handgun was confiscated from the residence, although Kinnaird denied the allegations from his son and wife.
