Disorderly conduct — A father who did not approve of his daughter’s choice of husband tried to keep his daughter from collecting her kids.

The daughter told deputies when she tried to go inside and get her kids her father pushed her back from the door.
Deputies had to inform the father that his daughter still had sole custody of the children and therefore he had to let her take the children.
