Man Gets Run Over By Lawnmower While Trying to Kill Son

A Bristol, Tennessee man is in trouble in more ways than one, after police say he was run over by a lawnmower while trying to kill his son with a chainsaw.

According to the sheriff’s office, 76-year-old Douglas Ferguson tried to attack his son on June 28 as the son was mowing the yard. That is when the father’s leg got caught in the lawnmower.

Paramedics found Ferguson bleeding from his leg and head. Authorities have not been able to serve a warrant for Ferguson’s arrest, as the leg had to be amputated and he remains hospitalized.

They add that the pair had a long-running feud.

Ferguson is being charged with attempted second-degree murder as well as violating probation.
