(Conway, AR) -- A man from Clinton, Arkansas is out on bond after allegedly almost drowning his eight year old daughter.
He claims God asked him to do it.
Van Buren police say Samuel Merryman's daughter was held under water until she blacked out.
He is charged with endangering a minor, kidnapping and battery.
"I just can't imagine that your dad holding you down by your neck under water somebody that's supposed to protect you. I just can't imagine the way that felt," said Kristy Merryman, the girl's mother.
Merryman had custody of his children when the incident occurred.
His ex-wife has now been granted temporary custody.Technorati Tags: Custodial,daughter,Conway,Arkansas,Father,Drown,Clinton,Buren,Samuel,Merryman,battery,neck,somebody,girl,custody,children,incident,wifeNote: Cross posted from [wp angelfury] Battered Mothers Rights - A Human Rights Issue.
