Super Klassy Dads Get Into Slap Fight At Child’s Performance…And There Was Spitting

dad slap fight


There’s no rage like parent rage. Two dads from Cape Girardeau, Missouri were issued summonses for disturbing the peace after an altercation Tuesday night at their kid’s performance. Their kindergartner’s performance. Let that sink in.

The fathers were Kevin Alexander, age 38 , and Ryan Steck, age 36. The fight occurred around 6:30 pm at Alma Schrader Elementary, according to Cape Giradeau Police Department public information officer Darin Hickey. Apparently Steck and Alexander started arguing and that eventually led to pushing and shoving, as a screaming match is wont to do. Remember, this was going on at a performance for 5-year-olds, presumably. Thankfully two off-duty cops were also there, as parents attending their kid’s show, and laid down the damn law. According to the off-duty police the fight was between a step-dad and a bio-dad of a kid in the program. #Klassy

In the Southeast Missourian article, Alexander claimed that he was only reacting to Steck yanking his stepdaughter out of his hands. He also said that this fight was “a long time coming,” which seems pretty obvious to me. This is where is goes from Klassy to UBER Klassy, because according to Alexander, Steck ALSO backhanded him and spat in his face. AT A KINDERGARTEN SHOW. Apparently it was just a free for all after that. I like to picture a down and out slap fight, personally. Alexander went on to say, ironically:

“The worst part about it was it was in an elementary school around a bunch of kids.”

For what its worth, Steck claims that he never laid a hand on Alexander and didn’t spit on him. Because off duty cops just arrest people for no reason, apparently. He supposedly just “blew air through his mouth.” WUT? I just can’t…

    I am shocked this didn’t happen in Florida.

    The worst part of this isn’t that it happened in a school. The worst part of this is that there’s a defenseless little girl caught between these two uncontrolled blowhards and this is going to be her life for the foreseeable future. If they behave like this around her in public,what are they like at home?

    If I were this girl’s mother I would seriously consider becoming and remaining single. She has not made wise choices when it comes to father figures for her daughter.

      Well you’re not. And the girls mother has been stalked, harassed, physically, sexually, and emotionally abused by Ryan Steck for years. Ryan is a preachers son so he seemingly can do no wrong. :-/ I can’t spell it our for you all but this is not the first time he has attacked us. Just to set another angle on how stupid the police are, when I was arrested they did not search me at all. I had police handcuff keys on my key chain hanging from my belt loop. The point is, with all the abuse that has been alleged and proven, the system has time and time again failed these kids. And this is what happens when the system doesn’t work, so let’s not judge me, the step-father. Look at your own husbands and KNOW that they would have done the same thing. Unless they are cowards.

    I’d love to meet the lucky lady who bedded both these prizes. Ten to one she took it as a compliment…

    It’s sadly common for exes and step/bio parents to consider their emotional distress before their children’s.

    Most don’t understand how traumatic it is for kids to see someone argue with their parent, period, let alone another parental figure. Kids think of their parents as a reflection of themselves, so when a stepparent insults the bio parent (or vice-versa), it’s basically the same as attacking the kid.

      The kids stated they were happy to see their father dealt with finally.

    Poor child. How humiliating. And one wonders how many playdates won’t take place in her future because of this.
