You might think the rent out here is too damn high, but one Ohio landlord “ain’t got time” for tenants who are late with the rent.

53-year-old Ron Kronenberger took matters into his own hands and whupped his 29-year-old tenant on his bare butt with his belt for being late in paying $2,800 in rent, according to reports.

Even though the young man acquiesced to the spanking (no word on who pulled down his pants for the hands-on punishment though), police still charged the landlord with misdemeanor assault.

Ron Kronenberger was named Wayneville, Ohio's "Citizen of the Year" in 2006

That didn’t bother Kronenberger one bit though, cause he’s like the honey badger: He doesn’t give a shit.

“If you’re going to act like a child, I’m going to treat you like one,” Kronenberger was quoted in the police report as telling the tenant before striking him four times with a belt. The report said the belt left “little marks.”

According to the police report, the victim said he complied with Kronenberger’s demands to bend over and place his hands on a chair while he spanked his bare ass because “he was scared and just wanted to get it over with.”

Ladies and gentlemen: Please pay your rent or mortgage on time. Otherwise, you could be in for something much more painful than a late fee.
