Proud Parents: In The News

An overprotective dad was so hellbent on setting his daughter straight that he showed up at her Midtown high school yesterday morning swinging a heavy chain with a padlock and demanding to speak to the principal.

“Who’s f–king my daughter?” 35-year-old Michael Canaii (pictured, at his arraignment last night) barked at the HS of Graphic Communication Arts on West 49th Street, according to a school source.

“He was yelling and complaining that his daughter was smoking weed and not listening to him, and he wanted the school to do something about that,” said a law-enforcement source.

The hulking Canaii, who was wearing all black, also insisted on talking to his daughter when he first showed up at the school at about 9 a.m.

“A man was outside with a chain. He was saying, ‘Where is my daughter?’ ” said a student. “He was swinging the chain saying, ‘I’m going to f–k you all up.’ One guy said something sly, and he took off after the guy and ran into the school.”

Inside, he threatened to fight anyone in his path, the school source said. Security cleared the lobby and students were blocked from entering, the source said. But his only crime — besides alleged criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and pot possession — was caring too much.

“[He] asked two students to take their stuff off and fight him in the lobby. He also asked security agents and a dean to ‘fight’ him as he was swinging a big chain around yelling, ‘No one is going to touch me,’ ” said the source.

“He’s a decent father,” said Canaii’s aunt, Sondra Williams, adding that the teen lives with her mother.

Canaii was briefly hospitalized after his arrest and was arraigned last night in Manhattan Criminal Court.

His lawyer said Canaii went to the school because he feared his daughter was involved in gang activity.

The dad was held in lieu of $5,000 bond or $1,000 cash bail.

  1. no offense, dear, but if you don’t want your daughter doing drugs and performing gang activity, don’t do it yourself!

  7. WTF? If he is such a decent father,then why pull something like this..besides being stupid? If your child is doing drugs and not listening to you,then take them in front of a juvinile judge with papers stateing what the girl can’t be doing. If they violate it then they go back to the judge and risk being put in juvi. Any parent who pulls something like this deserves to go to jail. Race and the assumption that he does drugs is not a factor…in case that’s what some of you might comment on.

  9. Angela– it says he was briefly hospitalized, but there is no mention of any injury taking place, so I’m suspecting he may have some sort of mental illness.

    He was possibly suffering a paranoid delusion, but since that sort of information falls under the ‘doctor/patient confidentiality deal,’ there’s no way to know for sure.

  13. Wow I have mixed feelings about this. For one thing, I realize that we don’t all live in communities that operate according to the same patterns and rules. I hesitate to judge this man, because his posturing might have been intended to scare off the hounds from his daughter. Those hounds might include teachers as well as students too, let’s remember. And some parents just freak out of concern for their kids when something comes up, which apparently it did. My father wasn’t around when I was a teen but I had an older brother. I remember someone telling me about the time that a rude biker boasted that he was going to score with me (like, NOT) but in any event, my brother’s response was to whip out his gun, hold it against the guy’s ear, and fire it. Not into the guy’s head mind you, the gun was pointed upward. It did permanently deafen the guy though. However, I can affirm that not one of those jerk bikers ever even dared to speak to me after that. (The cool ones still did, but I didn’t date, forbidden by my brother, as you might imagine)…. :)

  15. apparently his daughter was into his pot?
    maybe he should keep his pot locked up like i do?

  16. Doc on December 14th, 2012
  17. I’m going to be nice and assume that he had pot on him because it was the pot he found in her room/bag and he brought it with him to confront her.
