    From the looks of his mugshot, I would say that dad won the fight.

    Let me get this straight. More than one deputy, one guy with a shotgun, fires more than one shot each. Where did the bullets/pellets go?. Some one needs to go to the range and try to hit the side of that Red Barn. I wonder how many rounds the two deputys were firing from behind that tree, guess they had both eyes closed...... Glad no one else was down range.. Remind me to by pass Nash County.
