Okay, yeah this is a really gruesome story, but it’s also one that might deserve a “poetic justice” award.
Douglas Ferguson, 76, had to have his leg amputated after he “was run over with a lawn mower while trying to kill his son with a chain saw,” according to the Associated Press.
The alleged attack occurred on June 28, but due to the severity of Ferguson’s injuries, he couldn’t be served until this past Tuesday. Officers were called to the Tennessee home back in June, and found Ferguson’s head and leg bleeding.
“A preliminary investigation indicated he had tried to attack his son with a running chain saw while he son mowed the yard,” the AP reported.
Ferguson and his son had been feuding for some time, police said. The father has been charged with attempted second-degree murder and violating probation.
