Latest Violent Hector 'Macho' Camacho Story Involves His Kid Not Boxing

hector macho camachoBoxer Hector "Macho" Camacho was arrested this week on child abuse charges over an incident that took place a year ago involving his teenage son. Camacho allegedly became angry with the boy and wound up stomping on him on the ground -- an act that is heartbreaking and inconceivable for most parents to imagine. His son says he believes his dad was high on drugs when the altercation went down.

Even though Hector was the one who turned himself into police, he insists that he does not use drugs and indicates that things are nice and rosy again between him and his family. He also claims that while he did have an argument over money with his two teenage sons, he picked up the phone and called the police "before anything happened."

Let me get this straight -- he got mad and nothing happened, but he still felt the need to call the cops on the night of the quarrel and then turn himself in a year later? Does that sound sort of strange to anyone else? Because something with Hector's story just isn't quite adding up.

If everything was fine, then why did he feel the need to get the police involved at all? I'm sitting here scratching my head, but I just can't seem to wrap my brain around this one. For the sake of his son, let's hope these allegations are false. And let's also hope this serves as a lesson for other boxers to keep their aggressions in the ring because the speculation alone may be enough to cause a negative media frenzy.

Does Hector's story make any sense to you?
