AVON PARK A disagreement over a television remote led to an Avon Park man being charged with child abuse, according to an arrest report released Tuesday.
Bruce Haney, 55, no street address given, was arrested March 4 by the Highlands County Sheriff's Office and charged with child abuse after a 15-year-old girl accused Haney of pushing her.
The victim told authorities that Haney got into an argument with someone else and took the television remote, the report said. When she tried to get it back, she told deputies, Haney pushed in the upper chest area and called her a b---h, the report said.
He was released from the Highlands County jail on $2,000 bond.
