An Ohio man called 911 after getting in a fight with his adult son over a messy bedroom, The Plain Dealer reports.

Now the father, Andrew Mizsak, 63, says he "overreacted" and has declined to press charges against his 28-year-old son, also named Andrew.

The younger Mizsak is a member of the Bedford School Board, in a Cleveland suburb, and lives in a room in his father's basement.

The newspaper says that during the argument late last week, the son threw a plate of food across the kitchen table and made a fist at his father, prompting him to call police.

According to a police report, the newspaper says, the younger Andrew later agreed that he was lucky to live rent free in the house and was sent to clean up his room.

"He was crying uncontrollably and stated he would comply," the police report says.
