Man arrested after threatening son's middle-school classmate with a stun gun.

An angry dad whose son was having problems with a fifth grader at his Hollywood, Florida elementary school decided to take matters into his own hands Tuesday and pulled a stun gun on the frightened 11-year-old.

The incident happened as classes at Oakridge Elementary were being dismissed.

According to police, the father, 66-year-old Jose Enrique Guerrero confronted the fifth grader as he left the school campus, pushing him against a fence and threatening him with the stun gun while holding it inches from his face.

Guerrero allegedly told the boy, "Do you want some of this?"

When officers found Guerrero near the campus he was still wearing the stun gun on his waistband.

He was arrested on a felony charge of child abuse.

The 11-year-old told officers he'd been "having problems" with Guerrero's son, according to police.

Neighbors of Guerrero were shocked to learn of his actions, partly because he is a pastor at a local church.

He revealed his occupation to a Broward County judge, who was shocked to hear of the father's act of vengeance.

"There's clearly more to this story," the judge said.
