An Ohio landlord was accused of whipping an adult tenant on Jan. 22 for falling behind on his rent. He admitted to police at the time that he used a belt on the man's bare buttocks in his office at a supermarket, according to The Dayton Daily News.
Ronald Kronenberger is now accused of spanking a mentally disabled man with a belt and paddle, also at his supermarket office.
The Dayton Daily News reports the accusations came in a lawsuit filed this week in Warren County. The lawsuit accuses Kronenberger, 53, of spanking a mentally disabled man in his office at a supermarket. Police say they have no record of the incident.
A magistrate said he would dismiss the assault charge in the Jan. 22 case in six months if Kronenberger has no contact with the tenant and stays out of trouble.
Kronenberger is a former chamber of commerce president who was Waynesville's "Citizen of the Year" in 2006.
