A dad is accused of beating his kids because they didn't help him file his taxes


NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A 57-year-old Nashville father was jailed on Sunday after he allegedly became angry his kids wouldn't help him with his taxes and then beat them with an aerosol can.

According to the arrest records for David Munyawera, police say they responded to Munyawera's home for a domestic disturbance call.

With the assistance of a Swahili interpreter, the family says Munyawera was sitting at the kitchen table and highly intoxicated when he asked his daughter and her younger brother to help him prepare his taxes.

When the daughter and son refused and said maybe this wasn't the time to work on taxes, Munyawera became angry and chased the children, eventually catching them.

Once he did, he is accused of beating the children on their backs with an aerosol can. He then tried to scrape the daughter's hand with a metal nail file.

He then approached the mother who was laying in bed, scratching the mother. Police say the 14-year-old sibling left the home in fear and went to a friend's house down the street without returning home.
