(Scroll down for video) A teen boy stabbed his father after his father asked him to pull up his pants.

According to this Indiana teenager it is society, not his father who dictates how he wears his pants.

18-year-old Cody Burns was furious when his father asked him to pull up his baggy pants. Burns allegedly went to the kitchen and grabbed a knife. He then returned to the living room and stabbed his father in the left side of his chest, investigators said.

Police officers were called to the family home, where Burns, was arrested for the stabbing.

Officers noted blood spatter on the floor of the living room, where the victim had been sitting. A witness who was also inside the residence, supported the statement of the victim.

“After this incident, the family realized that it has to work on bringing the family closer to each other,” a family friend told

Burns was booked into jail and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. His bail is set at 75,000.

The father is expected to recover from the injury.
