Jose. L. Argueta Mejia, 40, of 121 N. Park St., was charged Saturday with domestic violence.
Officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department were called to his home around 6:55 p.m. and spoke with his wife, Rosalie, who was on the porch with their six- and nine-year-old sons.
They reported the suspect had been drinking alcohol and became angry when he found evidence of a dog scratching his car. He locked the vehicle and refused to go ahead with a planned fishing trip. When the youngest boy tried to get the keys from his dad, the suspect pushed the six-year-old to the gravel drive.
The father was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
