WAYNESVILLE–For the second time, a Waynesville supermarket owner has been accused of spanking grown men. The civil lawsuit filed this week, states a 57-year old mentally disabled man is seeking damages from Ron Kronenberger, for severe emotional distress. Michele Dakin said her brother, Mark Neace was a volunteer at Hometown Marketplace in Waynesville. Dakin said he stocked shelves for the grocery store‘s owner, Ron Kronenberger, who was a good family friend. Dakin said at least three times, Kronenberger brought her mentally challenged brother in the back office and beat him on the bottom with a paddle. Her brother said he was paddled for ” being bad” and talking to customers. Dakin says Kronenberger told her brother not to tell anyone what had happened. She said her brother finally confessed when he told his family he didn’t want to volunteer anymore. “I was just outraged.” Dakin said. ” I was shocked. This was someone we trusted . He did this behind our backs, knowing that my brother has problems. I’m just really saddened by the whole thing. I really am.”This is the second time Kronenberger has been accused of spanking. Last month he was in a Lebanon courtroom, accused of spanking his tenant for not paying rent.
Remember Ron Kronenberger? Spanked the shit out of his tenant because he was late on rent. Welp turns out he’s at it again. Just spanking retarded kids at his grocery store for talking to customers instead of stocking the shelves. So thats it I guess. Spanking is like this guy’s thing. His trademark. All the great ones leave their mark. The Wet Bandits leave the faucets running. The Joker leaves a playing card. Ron Kronenberger leaves his victims with red, swollen cheeks. Everywhere he goes, he leaves a trail of abused asses in his wake. Doesn’t matter whether you’re his apartment tenant or his retarded supermarket slave – you cross Ron Kronenberger your ass is getting paddled.
