The silence broke, the father said An ongoing case he hasn't talked to his daughter for four months and is stripped of what happened.
& # 39; It breaks me, I just want to give her a hug. I want to tell her I don't blame her, & he said.
He said the argument started when he asked his children for a missing chocolate bar.
The 13-year-old denied eating the chocolate, but her brother found the package in her room and gave it to the father.
The father claims that his daughter then broke out in a & # 39; typical tantrum & # 39; while she refused to go to her room or give him her phone as part of her punishment.
& # 39; While I brought her back to her room, she struggles with me, and she pushed me, we both fell, & # 39; he said.
The police originally claimed that the father threw a small ladder out of the way to get to his daughter.
However, the father said that he grabbed the ladder to prevent him from falling, but the ladder also came down and broke a light bulb.
While he was cleaning the glass, & # 39; stormed & # 39; the man's daughter left the room and accidentally cut her foot on a piece of glass.

The father then claims that he tried to calm his daughter, but she insisted that she wanted her phone back.
He threatened his daughter that he would & # 39; hit & # 39; if she continued to scream and continue his threat when she did.
The girl then chose to call her mother before contacting the police.
& # 39; I picked up the phone from her and I spoke to the lady on Triple Zero and she said: & # 39; put your daughter back on & # 39; and didn't even want to listen to me, & # 39; he said.
He tried to tell the police that it was only his 13-year-old daughter who & # 39; a little aunt & # 39; was on the phone, but he was charged a month after the incident.

The man was accused of mistreatment that caused physical injury and deliberately destroyed her cell phone.
While being held in his cell, the 41-year-old said he continued to cry because he could not believe the outcome of the situation.
The man told Gosford Local Court that he was just & # 39; father & # 39; and took the phone away as punishment.
The man said he was just holding his daughter by the shoulders.
After hearing the arguments of both parties, Magistrate Andrew George rejected the charges of attack, did not accept any conviction for destroying the cell phone and labeled the whole thing as a & # 39; time-wasting & # 39 ;.
