A father has been charged with pointing an AK-47 at his 15-year-old daughter because she only got a B on her schoolwork, it was revealed today.

Kirill Bartashevitch, 52, allegedly pointed the deadly weapon at the girl, who is unidentified, in anger that she wasn't getting straight As in high school, according to MyFox9.

The teenager texted a friend from Central High School, St Paul, Minnesota to tell her about the confrontation on January 17 and the friend's mother called social services, the report said.

Bartashevitch had just recently bought two of the assault rifles from Bill's Gunshop in the town, in fear they would be outlawed under government gun control legislation.

He then allegedly used one of the weapons in the row with his child.

His daughter told him she 'hated' him when he confronted her about her grades and then swore at him.

He allegedly pointed the gun at her in anger, according to the report, and when his wife stepped in between them he pushed her to the ground and allegedly pointed the gun at them both.

He then sent his daughter to her bedroom.

The girl then texted a male friend whose mother went to the school's social worker who then contacted the police.

When arrested by police, Bartashevitch admitted to the confrontation but said the gun wasn't loaded.

His daughter also told her friend she wasn't scared because she knew he hadn't loaded the gun.

Bartashevitch was charged today at Ramsey County District Court with two counts of terroristic threats for pointing the gun.

His bail conditions stipulate he is to have no contact with his daughter or wife.

He could face a maximum for five years for each count he faces.
