Colquitt County deputies say they responded to a call early Tuesday (12/14) morning that two men had been fighting with a lead pipe and an ax handle.

They say 35-year-old Don Smith Jr. picked up the pipe after being told by his father, 57-year-old Don Smith Sr. to leave the last cup of coffee in the pot for his mother.

Smith Sr. told authorities he picked up the ax handle to protect himself.

Deputies say they could not determine who started the fight when they arrived on scene, as both men were cut and bruised.

Smith Jr. and Smith Sr. are both charged with battery.

    If I was that idiot's parents he would never be back in my house ever again. Sr. ended up in jail for being in his home and tell a guest what he couldn't do in his home and landed in jail. That is wrong....so wrong.

    What kind of son would hit his father for any reason.A cup of coffee is a crazy thing to hit your father over.If he has any brothers they need to take him out behind the barn.

    I would tell that son to GET OUT OF MY HOUSE! Someone or both of them are crazy! Wonder what the mother said about this! I hope she enjoyed her coffee!

    Wow, sounds like something that would occur in Moultrie. People need to learn that most things in the world aren't that important to fight over. Solution to their problem: MAKE MORE COFFEE!!! Seriously people ... get right or get left.
