A 16-year-old Florida girl who hit her father when he tried to spank her has been charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.
An Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office report says the father told a deputy that he was attempting to spank the girl when she turned around and struck him in the face with her fist.
The report said she tried to hit him several more times before leaving with friends.
Both father and daughter said the argument started over an item that had been broken.
The father slapped the girl's face when she cursed at him.
She acknowledged that when he went to spank her, she punched him.
