Volusia County authorities say a man is behind bars for using a tire iron to attack his brother over a pair of jeans.

A sheriff's office report said 23-year-old John Wyllie and 25-year-old Joshua Wyllie were arguing Thursday night over the pants. The argument escalated into punches being thrown.

John Wyllie then got the tire iron from a truck and struck his older
brother in the back of the head.

John Wyllie then took off running. Authorities said he returned home and told deputies he felt bad about hitting his brother.

John Wyllie was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was taken to jail where he was being held without bail Friday.
