An 18-year-old Auburn man was arrested after punching his father in the face after a dispute over the use of foul language.
Cody Scott Worrell, 18, of 64 Main Street in Auburn, had reportedly been using profane language in front of his young nephew when the child began repeating some of the more vulgar words.
Worrell’s father was lecturing him about swearing in front of the child when Worrell became irate and punched his father in the nose. Both Worrell’s father and a witness to the incident said Worrell had a closed knife in his fist when he punched his father in the nose.
Worrell’s father suffered a laceration across the bridge of his nose as a result of the blow.
Officers later located Worrell and placed him under arrest. Worrell claimed his father had punched him first, but there were no visible injuries on Worrell and no witnesses to corroborate his claim. Worrell also denied having anything in his hand when he punched his father, however officers located two knives on his person.
Worrell was charged with aggravated battery and disorderly conduct.
