Florida Man Shoots His Son-In-Law For Trying To Change TV Channel

An 89-year-old Jacksonville man has been charged with aggravated battery following a Saturday shooting in a dispute over television, police said.

Via Jacksonville News reports:

During the argument, Kenon Lee Ferguson told his 59-year-old son-in-law “you don’t own anything in this house,” a police report said.

Joel Edward Perry responded, “do something about it,” the report said.

A witness told police Ferguson went to his bedroom and returned with a .38 caliber handgun. The argument heated up and Perry was shot in the right leg. The injuries were not life-threatening, police said.

Both men and Perry’s wife were at the house in the 12000 block of Lazarette Court where they all live when officers arrived about 7:30 p.m.

Ferguson owns the house, according to property records.

He is charged with aggravated domestic battery and was being held Monday in the Duval County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Inmates in the jail don’t have television privileges, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
