A Cleveland man allegedly pulled a gun on his 9-year-old daughter and threatened to pull the trigger after the girl stepped on a dog’s tail.

Daniel Roman has been charged with menacing, child endangerment, and domestic violence for pointing a gun at his daughter and telling her “Step on the dog’s tail again, and I will pull the trigger.”

According to reporting by Cleveland’s 19 Action News, court documents also accuse Roman of threatening his two 7 year-old twins, “You tell anyone, I will hurt you and your sisters.”

Roman entered a plea of “not guilty,” and his grandmother told Action News that Roman did not threaten his daughter with a gun, but her stepfather says that Roman called to volunteer a denial before he was even accused:
