A Cincinnati man is charged with tying his 12-year-old daughter by her hands and feet with duct tape and placing her in a dog cage. Ha also threatened to electrify the crate as punishment for her bad behavior.

James Tapke, 41, was charged on January 19th with child endangering. His attorney, Christopher Jackson, told a judge that the incident was “some horseplay” and a joke that “got out of control.”

Police said the girl’s 13-year-old brother let her out after about 20 minutes, but their father put her back in after she poured water on his head.

Police also said that Tapke and the girl’s brother took pictures of her while she was in the cage and that the boy posted them to Facebook. Police said the pictures were later deleted.

The children are in their grandparents’ care, authorities said.
