FORT SMITH, AR—Hoping to avoid rudely interrupting the meals of nearly two dozen other patrons, James Larson lowered his voice while quietly scarring his 7-year-old son emotionally, sources at the Dodson Diner reported Thursday. "You shut your damn mouth," hissed Larson in the small boy's ear, while being careful not to upset those in the restaurant's dining area. "Just wait till we get you home. I swear I'll slap that stupid smirk right off your face." Worried that he may have overstepped his bounds, Larson then repeatedly apologized to his waitress and politely excused himself and his whimpering son so that he could administer a proper chastising.
