33-year-old Joe Mongeon was arrested and charged in Pennsylvania with two counts of assault after he allegedly beat up a 9-year-old boy who annoyed him in a water balloon fight.
According to witnesses, Mongeon instigated the water balloon fight with the child.
However, Mongeon became “enraged” after the young boy successfully targeted Mongeon with a water balloon of his own.
That’s when witnesses say Mongeon pushed the child to the ground and began kicking him.
When the boy’s mother, Helen Flynn, attempted to intervene, Mongeon allegedly punched her in the face.
Both mother and son refused medical attention after Mongeon was arrested.
Police later charged Mongeon with harassment, along with the counts of simple assault. He was released on Monday after posting a $5,000 bail.
