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.
