SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — A man in the Phoenix suburb of Surprise is accused of trying to discipline his underage sons by forcing them to drink liquor and throwing them into a swimming pool.

KPHO-TV (http://bit.ly/M8e80r ) reports that Kristopher Harvey of Surprise faces two counts of child abuse. Police say Harvey wanted to discipline his 13- and 14-year-old sons for getting into his alcohol last week.

They say Harvey made the boys take three shots each of hard liquor and then threw them into the pool.

The boys were visiting Harvey from California, where they live with their grandmother.
