A Tennessee man confessed to choking his daughter after he found out that she was posting naked pictures of herself on Snapchat.

On Sunday, 45-year-old Christian Amason was arrested after his 14-year-old daughter reported to authorities that she had been abused, the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said.

He was charged with child neglect and abuse, according to a police report acquired by WDEF-TV.

The teen told police that she and her mother, Norma Amason, were home when they started fighting about graphic pictures posted to her social media account. She alleged that her mother tried to hit her, but she wouldn’t let her.

Her father then meddled in the discussion and began to slap her. He then left the teen with bruises and red marks on her body.
