Dad Gets Probation for Shock Collar

KNOXVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- A 35-year-old Iowa man who had placed a shock collar on his son has been sentenced.
   Daniel Hardwick, of Knoxville, was given a two-year suspended sentence and two years of probation. He was fined $625. The charge was child endangerment, no injury.
   A court affidavit says Hardwick put the collar on his 12-year-old son and shocked him as motivation to do chores. Hardwick also was accused of putting the child in a high chair by a street curb with a sign that said, "I refused to eat my big boy food, please feed me -- I'm hungry."
   Hardwick told the station in July that he understood he made a mistake putting the collar on his son, but he had no intention of shocking him.
