Deputy Viverette arrested Willie Moore Sr., 78, and Willie Moore Jr., 62. Both are scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 20.

The elder Moore was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and was held on a $1,000 bond, officials said. The younger Moore was charged with simple assault and was held on a $500 bond.

    78 minus 62 = 16 years in my book..where is the 15 coming from?

    "The elder Moore was charged with assault with a deadly weapon... The younger Moore was charged with simple assault..."

    While a gun does much damage, being hit with a cane HURTS! The fact that they are only 15 years apart says this trouble actually started 62 years ago.
