Share this post

A Griffith man has been charged with punching his pregnant daughter in the mouth on the same day she laid to rest her unborn child's father. According to court documents, Richard Metsch is charged with battery, resulting in bodily injury to a pregnant woman, and resisting law enforcement regarding the incident that occurred in his home on May 30th, in Griffith. Abigail Metsch suffered a busted lip as a result of her father's actions, who informed officers who arrived at the scene that her father had allegedly been smoking crack and drinking earlier in the day to self-medicate due to old injuries, and was upset that she would now have to live with them.
