A man was charged with aggravated assault and domestic battery after he threatened his son with a samurai sword and later bit him after the victim tried to restrain him, deputies said.
Herbert Theodore Jones II, of 6265 Kimball Court, was transported to the Hernando County Jail and was held without bond.
The Hernando County Sheriff's Office responded shortly after 1:20 a.m. Saturday at the house. The victim and two witnesses said Jones became irate at his 21-year-old son for playing videogames and slapped the machine out of his hands and onto the ground, the report showed.
The son stood up to Jones, who then grabbed the sword from under his bed and pointed it at the victim's chest, deputies said.
