An argument brewing over the last beer turned bloody when a Tennessee father ended the squabble by plunging a kitchen knife into his son’s leg twice, police said.
The beer battle occurred on Friday night in Timothy Crabtree’s Rogersville home, where he was kicking back with his 21-year-old son, Brandon, according to the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office. But when it was time to break open the last beer, the father and son apparently decided it was something neither wanted to share.
The bickering became physical when the younger Crabtree allegedly pushed his 45-year-old father onto the ground and “started assaulting him,” authorities said. "Timothy stated he grabbed a kitchen knife that was laying on the kitchen counter and stabbed his son twice in the leg to get him off of him,” according to the deputies’ report.
Once Brandon Crabtree realized he had been stabbed, he had his brother take him to the emergency room. Both men reportedly had scratches to their faces. The father was charged with aggravated domestic assault, a felony, while his son was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault. An arraignment is set for Oct. 29.
