KINGWOOD — Police say a 40-year-old Tunnelton man battered his father on Father’s Day.

Harold Duwayne Spencer was charged June 18 with third-offense domestic battery. State Police Cpl. A.S. Taylor says in the criminal complaint that the father said Spencer hit him in the face, held him down and bent his fingers backwards in an attempt to break them.

The father’s face was bleeding, and his eye was swollen, according to the officer. Taylor says Spencer was convicted July 1999 and December 2000 of domestic battery.
