According to a Thursday night press release from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas Ferguson, 76, is charged with attempted second-degree murder. The incident that led to both his charges and injuries occurred on June 28.

Police report that when they were called to a home on Highway 421 in Bristol, Tennessee, Ferguson was found bleeding from his head and leg. Meanwhile, questioning of witnesses revealed that Ferguson’s son had been mowing on a zero-turn mower.

For unspecified reasons, Ferguson allegedly tried to attack his son with a running chain saw. SCSO investigators report the two men had an ongoing feud with several previous run-ins.
