An East Tennessee dad reportedly forced his teen son to drink alcohol until he passed out, police said this week.

WBIR-TV reports Sweetwater police have charged 35-year-old Mark Allen Hughes with aggravated child abuse and neglect and with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to The Associated Press. Hughes reportedly forced the 15-year-old to consume alcohol as a punishment after catching him drinking.

The station reports police were called to the teen's home Saturday night by witnesses who said Hughes forced his son to play a drinking game. Officers said when they arrived, the boy had no pulse and they performed CPR until an ambulance arrived.

The teen's grandmother told the station he has been released from the hospital and is doing well.

"We're going to prosecute it to the fullest," Sweetwater Police Chief Eddie Byrum told WBIR-TV. "We'd like to use this as an example where if anybody else is out there and thinks this is how they're going to govern their children or direct them, we will put a stop to it."
