Sheriff: Bloody fight ensues after dad tries to have sex with son’s girlfriend | Crime
Deputies responded to an assault call between a father and son on Saturday.
According to a Lexington County Sheriff’s Department incident report, officers responded to an assault call around 9:00 p.m. at a home on Otis Road in Pelion.
Upon arrival, officers met with the father of the victim, who told them that he and his son got into a physical altercation.
Deputies say while speaking with the dad, they could smell a strong odor of alcohol on him and observed several bruises and bleeding from the side of his face.
Officers say when asked, the father refused medical attention.
Officers questioned the father about what sparked the fight, but he refused to give them a straight answer stating that his son has “mental problems.”
Upon further investigation, officers entered the residence and found that everything in the hallway had been knocked over and that blood and vomit were on several items on the floor.
When officers entered the bedroom, they found the son asleep with his girlfriend next to him.
When deputies tried to wake up the son, they smelled a strong odor of alcohol on him and noticed that he was not responding.
After officers made several attempts to wake up the son, they performed a sternum rub, which alerted him.
While questioning the son, officers observed that he too was bleeding from his face and also had several bruises.
Deputies asked the son what happened and he replied saying that his dad had beaten the “bleep” out of him.
Deputies say the son also refused medical attention.
When officers questioned the son on what had transpired, the son told deputies that he plead the 5th amendment.
Officers then questioned the son’s girlfriend, who also was intoxicated.
The girlfriend told officers that father and son began fighting because the father was making passes at her and trying to get her to have sex with him.
She also said that the son threw the first punch.
Officers advised both parties to be separated for the night after they both refused to press charges.
