‘Tis the season for teens for acting like entitled jerks. Police in Brockton, Mass. say that 18-year-old Alexander Torres allegedly pulled a knife on his father Wednesday morning because he didn’t get the iPhone that he wanted for Christmas. 

According to a report from the Enterprise News, police arrived on the scene with Mr. Torres “fighting with everyone in the house and he pulled out a knife on his father.” The teen was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery and malicious damage to a vehicle. 

The father wasn’t injured during the teen’s very mature outburst, but Mr. Torres’ 24-year-old stepbrother was sent to a local hospital for reasons not known. We’re guessing that he just wanted to get away from it all.
