When his daughter called to say her boyfriend hit her, a Cobb County deputy jumped in his car and drove to Tallahassee, Fla., officials said.

Chester Coachman Jr. was arrested about 3:25 a.m. Thursday, after he allegedly pulled a gun on Juleon Camel, according to a Tallahassee police report.

Tallahassee is about 270 miles south of Atlanta.

Lauren Coachman told her father that her boyfriend, Leon Camel, stole the keys to her apartment and took her car, the report states.

When the 52-year-old father arrived at his daughter’s boyfriend’s apartment, he met Leon Camel’s brother, Juleon Camel, who told police the angry father pulled a gun and asked if he hit his daughter.

“Did you hit my child?” Chester Coachman allegedly asked while pointing a gun at Juleon Camel, according to the report.

When the Tallahassee police officer asked Coachman why he drove from Atlanta, Chester Coachman said he wanted to get his daughter’s keys back.

Though the officer wrote in the report, “Chester was very polite and cooperative the entire time,” the officer arrested Coachman and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill.
