Police describe the incident as “minor” and “there were no signs of visible abuse.” Los Angeles police Officer Catherine Massey says the two “were brought in, calmed down, talked to and released.”

Janey (juh-NAY’) Williams told the program she was angry because her father, who is a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, had resumed drinking.
