The Walton County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) today arrested Roger Zorn, 19, of Westville, Fla., for aggravated battery.

The investigation began Dec. 18 after deputies were dispatched to 3212 State Highway 2 in Westville, Fla., regarding a domestic altercation with injuries.

Upon arrival, deputies determined that Zorn allegedly used a knife to cut his father’s neck, arm and throat. Zorn allegedly used a flashlight to strike another man on the head. Both victims were transported via ambulance to local hospitals for treatment.

During the incident, deputies encountered Zorn in the front yard of the property and were forced to deploy a Taser as a means of less-lethal force to make the arrest.

Zorn was charged with two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony.

Get phyically in shape from having to be in fights of all kinds. Eat questionable food.Go to bed at regular hours.It's worse than following your parents orders.But he wanted to find out the hard way.
