A landlord is facing charges after allegedly “spanking” a tenant over unpaid rent.

Then the tenant says the landlord smacked him on the rear four times with a belt.

Police say the landlord told the 29-year-old man, "If you're going to act like a child, I’m going to treat you like one".

The landlord 53-year-old Ron Kronenberger pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He has been ordered to stay away from his now former tenant. According to police in Ohio the tenant owed about $2800 bucks.
