THE WEEKLY VICE
Waynesville, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) – Ron Kronenberger, a 53-year-old Ohio man, has been charged after he allegedly spanked a tenant on his bare buttocks because the victim was late on his rent.
According to police, Kronenberger, decided to teach one of his tenants a lesson when the man fell $2,800 behind on his rent.
Kronenberger, who owns Hometown Market and is a former president of the area’s Chamber Of Commerce, was voted as the Waynesville Citizen of the Year in 2006.
Investigators say Kronenberger shouted at the victim that if he was “going to act like a child, he would treat (the victim) like one.” That’s when he repeatedly struck the victim on the bare buttocks with a belt, according to an arrest affidavit.
