Landlord Ron Kronenberger whipped one of his tenants after the man failed to pay his rent on time. The tenant submitted to the punishment as a way of compensating for the delay in payment. Kronenberger used a belt to do the deed.
The incident in question took place in Waynesville, Ohio, at Hometown Marketplace, a supermarket owned by Kronenberger
According to The Inquisitr, the 29-year-old tenant owed Kronenberger $2,800 in back rent. When the tenant stopped by the office at the supermarket, he took off his pants and let Kronenberger whip him four times on his naked backside.
There are apparently pictures of the man’s behind that show four distinct marks.
“If you're going to act like a child, I'm going to treat you like one,” Kronenberger said.
Police Chief Gary Copeland said the tenant was very frightened of Kronenberger and just wanted to get everything over with as quickly as possible.
Kronenberger, a former Waynesville “Citizen of the year,” has been charged with one count of assault for the whipping that he handed out. He missed his first arraignment.
