A 12-year-old boy in Miami Beach might have been the happiest person ever to spot Jehovah's Witnesses. They found him tied to a pole after his dad decided to try out some unorthodox parenting techniques and left him there while he went shopping.

According to NBC Miami Adolfo Guzman, 49, was sick of his son wandering off for hours at a time and not telling him where he was. On Saturday the boy took off, and Guzman warned him that he would tie him up the next time. So on Sunday the boy took off again without permission, and Guzman made good on his promise.

He tied him to a concrete pole outside of the family's apartment with a wire bicycle lock around his ankles and then took off himself to do some shopping.

The Jehovah's Witnesses then found the boy and called police. Police arrived and had to call the Miami Beach Fire Department to cut the boy loose. He was complaining about pain in his ankles.

Guzman returned home and said he was just trying to teach the boy a lesson, but was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse. Guzman has no previous record with the Department of Children and Families.

"You shouldn't even be chaining a dog up to a pole much less your own son," Miami Beach Police spokesman Bobby Hernandez told the station.

@danmera Please do your research before commenting on a religious group. You will never hear of anyone active as a JW doing vile things such as the two you have listed. It is very clear you know nothing about the TRUTH. The next time a JW knock on your door at least get the facts before posting inaccurate information.

They will call the police when it's someone else's kid. Pedophiles, abusers, run rampant in their religion, but they wont call the police on them...because they don't turn in fellow JWs. No matter how vile the crime.

What a creep.  I hope he undertands that the feeling of the handcuffs around his ankles is just what his son was feeling.

"Tied to a Poll"

"They found him tied to a poll"

"He tied him to a concrete poll"

You mean pole.  Spending too much time writing filler articles about polls must be the cause of this mix up.

@Danmera, please do your research before posting lies about a religious organizations. Clearly you link religion up in one group but you don't know anything about the TRUTH.

@Danmera Any JW who does NOT turn in a known Pedophile or abuser would find themselves excommunicated. Get your facts straight.
