Anytime a parent shows up to their child’s school outside of a teacher-parent conference you know it’s all bad. Yesterday, Michael Canaii earned the embarrassing daddy of the year award, hands down, after he showed up at the HS of Graphic Communication Arts in New York City with one serious question: “Who’s f**king my daughter?”
Oh my damn.
A law-enforcement source told the NY Post:
“He was yelling and complaining that his daughter was smoking weed and not listening to him, and he wanted the school to do something about that.”
According to a student account, one guy caught the wrong end of that anger when he said something slick about the mouth and daddy Canaii chased him into the school. There, the 35-year-old concerned father not only kept yelling, he was also swinging a heavy chain with a padlock and demanding to speak to both his daughter and the school’s principal — all of this at nine in the morning.
“[He] asked two students to take their stuff off and fight him in the lobby,” the source added. “He also asked security agents and a dean to ‘fight’ him as he was swinging a big chain around yelling, ‘No one is going to touch me.’ ”
Unfortunately for him, someone did in fact touch him — police officers. Canaii was promptly arrested for his potentially violent outburst, although as the NY Post put it, ”his only crime — besides alleged criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and pot possession — was caring too much.”
The dad had to be briefly hospitalized after his arrest and he was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court last night and held in lieu of a $5,000 bond or $1,000 cash bail. According to the lawyer, Canaii went to the school because he feared his daughter was involved in gangs. What that had to do with who was having sex with her I don’t know but I guess I shouldn’t try to make sense of this whole thing. Nevertheless Canaii’s aunt, Sondra Williams, who told the Post that the daughter in question lives with her mother, vouched for her nephew’s character, saying:
“He’s a decent father.”
I can only imagine what he will say to his daughter when he’s released from custody. I would not want to be her right now.
