A Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty to abandoning his teenage daughter, reportedly because of a bad calculus grade.
Cops were called to an intersection in Cheltenham, Pa., on Feb. 22 by people who said a child was asking strangers for a place to stay, the Ambler Gazette newspaper reported.
Authorities said that, after an argument at home about the 16-year-old girl's grades, her father told her she had an hour to pack and that she couldn't live with her family anymore.
Cops said dad Tuan Huynh drove her 20 km from home and let her out at a street corner near a mall with only her backpack and a small satchel, without provisions, money or a cellphone, the Ambler Gazette reported.
