Deputies announced on Monday that they had arrested a man wanted for allegedly telling his 13-year-old daughter to kill herself, which led to the victim cutting himself several nights and then one day swallowing 14 Benadryl tablets in an attempt to put end his own life, authorities said in the arrest affidavit against 33-year-old Gared Wayne Canales.

The documents are dated April 12, but the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office in Florida announced his arrest on Monday. Canales was found in Massachusetts and is now in Flagler County Jail for child abuse without grievous bodily harm and misdemeanor violation of probation, authorities said.

Canales was already on probation after pleading no contest to violating a domestic violence injunction. He was sentenced to 30 days in prison, credited with 13 days behind bars on October 18, 2021, and also had to serve a year of probation. Records from October 5, 2022 showed he allegedly violated his probation by not complying with orders such as enrolling in a domestic violence intervention program, staying away from the victim in this case (regarding an incident of November 26, 2021), and pay the $28 supervision fee to Judicial Correctional Services.
