Have you ever seen a parent act so violently out in public that you shudder to consider how they must act at home?
One dad epitomized this thought at, of all places, Disney World.
41-year-old Dario Napolitano kicked his toddler son in the face while the child was strapped in his stroller…and to top that off, Napolitano is a doctor!
On a family vacation, the Napolitanos were here from Italy and visiting the Epcot Kingdom. A family argument ensued and that’s when the father allegedly kicked the boy in the face. Luckily, the park’s security guards saw what happened and promptly called the police. The boy suffered “a cut below his left eye, an abrasion above his left eyebrow” and a swollen left eye.
The parents not only refused to allow their child to be taken to the hospital because they believed he didn’t require any further medical attention, but they told police an entirely different story. They said that their older son pushed their younger son too forcefully in his stroller causing him to topple out and fall on his face. Disney employees however maintain the father kicked the child in the face.
Dr. Napolitano was arrested and charged with child abuse, but later released on $2,000 bail.
