That boy needs to obey the father as long as he is under the man's roof. If he cannot live by the laws , he should pack out.

What the boy is doing is very wrong. You and any logically thinking person know this; He his putting him self in harms way and also exposing people around him to danger by doing such. So YES. The father can report to police on this grounds.

If he thinks he is man enough let him move out honourably. I know the father will support such.


Peace.

Maybe this story setting is in obodo oyinbo cos if it was in Nigeria and his father happens to be my fsther,
He will always be home by 6pm
Do all his chores and even behave himself.

Not taking drugs, smoking or not moving about with bad guys doesn't portray a person innocent, what will you be doing outside till that late hour, he should obey his father and be home early.

Father doesn't hate him. He wants the best for him.

He's certainly rebellious but he should obey and calm down. He's still a child.

No police would take the man serious.

The father like many African parents is overreacting.

The boy might be watching champions league games. It's not always exciting watching it alone at home.

I know grown ups who stay up late to watch champions league.

Of a truth I tell you, most people will tell him to enjoy his youth but he is not doing that in the right way.

I have a neighbour who is a generator engineer and he was coming back home late one evening when he was stopped by policemen. This guy ended in the cell that night and he took efforts of my lawyer brother to get him out.

See, we have all been young and have all formed big boy at a point but bro e no pay us.

Moreover you don't know what the father is going through. Wait till he becomes a father and he will know HOW FAR.

P.S -If I was the father, I will make him sign that if he enters any fights/troubles/police issues or medical condition/injuries due to his late night movements, I will be exempted from the responsibilities as he has chosen to decline my advice. I will laminate this written agreement.

Rules are rules!
If one's going to break any, they better have a good excuse or take permission ahead of time.
Even the police will arrest you for disobeying curfew, how much more one's father.

Rules are not set at stone. Father isn't God.

The OP started with the fact that his cousin doesn't like his father and ended with "I believe father just hates him"

That should speak volume of the kind of parent the father is. Threatening a 20 yr old with police simply shows you are not a good father.

The OP's cousin even did it to spite his father.

Forget, some fathers are not fatherly.
Re: Can A Father Arrest His Son For Coming Home Very Late? by Richy4(m): 4:13pm On Dec 27, 2020
OP U believe his father hates him because he wants to save him from himself right?.... Hmm!!! Ok... But for your information, he can easily report him that he is running wild... And ask the police to get him arrested/ cautioned... So yes it can happen..
Re: Can A Father Arrest His Son For Coming Home Very Late? by thorpido(m): 4:24pm On Dec 27, 2020
Even if the son has issues with the father,he can stay in his room and read books or play games.
Coming home late isn't the best way to deal with issues with parents.

.
U already taking sides. U believed the father just hate Him, just like that. Why would a father just decide to hate his son?.

The boy should behave himself till when he's old enough to stand on his own. Then he can decides to park out.

He Shouldn't Arrest Him. He Shouldn't Allow Him In Whenever He Comes Home Late Or He Should Send Him Away To Start Living On His Own.

There is no hatred there, the issue is that his father never created the synergy for both of them

He should try and get admitted into school and he will be a distance away from him

Alternatively, he should have a meeting with his mother and father to find out why his father is not showing him fatherly love

There has to be a round table discussion before it gets out of hand

I KNOW OF A MAN WHO SHOT HIS SON ON THE LEG FOR TRYING TO CLIMB THE FENCE AFTER THE FATHER HAS LOCKED THE GATE. HE JUST DROPPED HIM AT THE OTHORPAEDIC HOSPITAL THE FOLLOWING MORNING. ALWAYS OBEY THE RULES IF YOU ARE STILL UNDER YOUR FATHER'S ROOF.

Actually, the Father forcefully took them when they were still little kids and went to another city abandoning the mother behind with his eldest son.The father doesn't talk to the mom at all.
He is always swearing for his eldest son,their mom,my cousin and the rest children sometimes.

Whenever she comes to see her children, the Father doesn't allow her in the house,she would sit on the verandah talking to them with the Father forcing her to leave in not up to 3 hours. Last year, they formally divorced and the mum has remarried and the Father is hoping to get married too but my cousin is strongly against that idea.

If that is the case

Then the father is toxic

He should leave the father to his mother and manage with her

that's the problem now. He said he can't stay with his mother again because she got married again, he doesn't want a step father.
