Holland said Bernier and the man have shared custody of the 17-year old girl.
“The daughter appeared to be having a bad day with [Bernier] and didn’t say goodbye,” Holland said. “The man wanted to make sure his daughter was OK.”
That’s when Bernier assaulted the man, and she wound up under arrest, according to Holland.
