A Washington state father was arrested over the weekend for allegedly punishing his 7-year-old daughter with a waterboarding-like technique, according to police probable-cause documents. Police in Lakewood arrived at a local convenience store on Sunday where they say a woman told them her boyfriend had “waterboarded” the girl. The woman said her boyfriend “violently spanked” his daughter with a belt after she lied and talked back to him, the report said. The woman estimated the man poured water over his daughter for 15 to 20 seconds while she screamed “I can’t breathe,” the report said. Police said he admitted to spanking his daughter and carrying out the waterboard technique but stopped after she yelled: “I don’t want to die,” the report said.
