Talking Father Arrested for Forcing Son to Wear Green Bay Packers Jersey

PORTAGE, Wis. (AP) - Upset that his 7-year-old son wouldn't wear a Green Bay Packers jersey during the team's playoff victory Saturday, a man restrained the boy for an hour with tape and taped the jersey onto him.

Mathew Kowald was cited for disorderly conduct in connection with the incident with his son at their home in Pardeeville, Lt. Wayne Smith of the Columbia County Sheriff's Department said. Pardeeville is about 30 miles north of Madison.

The 36-year-old Kowald was arrested Monday after his wife told authorities about the incident. Kowald was taken to the county jail and held until Wednesday, when he pleaded no contest, paid a fine of $186 and was released.

Kowald's wife filed a restraining order Wednesday, so Kowald will not be able to have contact with his family, Smith said. Smith said other domestic issues have surfaced, though he wouldn't elaborate.

The boy refused to wear the jersey Saturday, when the Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks in a playoff game, Smith said. Smith said the incident sounded strange when reported at first, but the mother took pictures with her cell phone and that type of evidence is difficult to dispute.

Kowald, contacted later Wednesday by the Portage Daily Register, said the incident started as a joke. His son challenged him by saying he wouldn't root for the Packers. When he tied the boy up, the youngster was laughing while his wife took pictures, he said.

"Then he couldn't get out and he got upset and that's it. It lasted a minute," he said. "I didn't mean no harm, and he knows that, but I haven't been able to tell him that."

District Attorney Jane Kohlwey said there wasn't enough evidence to support felony charges.

"I wouldn't agree with what he did, but legally a parent can restrain a child," she said. "I have no proof of emotional damage. ... I have to follow the law.

Duct tape... is there anything it can't do?

Kid pissed off dad. Dad taped the jersey to the kid. LOL! He didn't smack the kid, or beat him, or anything physically harmful.

I guess I'm ok with it. That kid better not turn out to be a damned Cowboys fan though. ;)


EDIT:: Dad went about it the wrong way though. I praise the Steelers all the time when I talk to my kids about them. I make them believe that there isn't a better team to cheer for than the Steelers.

Yes, I have a problem with that. Duct tape, ropes, chains, I don't care. That is wrong.

Now if he JUST taped the jersey on the kid. Hey, the kid has to show a little respect for pops team!

It could have been worse. He could have duck taped the kid naked to the chair and then peeled the tape off slowly.

For some reason, I get the feeling that this will be one of those father's who I will see on the 6:00 news, running out on the field and tackling a 13 year old.

What a tool.
