Dad tries to serve 3rd grade daughter's detention at Meadow View Elementary School in Plainfield

February 13, 2014 (CHICAGO)

The third grade student was late to class multiple times and per school policy, she must serve detention.

School officials say the man wanted to sit in detention for his daughter because the tardiness was not her fault.

The school district says the Dad cannot sit in detention for his daughter, but he will be allowed to join his daughter in detention if he would like.
