KEY WEST, Fla. - A Florida Keys man was arrested after he threw an ax at his father, injuring his wrist, Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said.
Austin Odom, 26, faces a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Odom's 47-year-old father told deputies that he asked his son for some money to buy food, which made Odom angry. He said Odom slapped a $100 bill onto the counter, grabbed an ax and chopped the bill in half.
Herrin said Odom then threw the ax at his father, who ducked and put his hands up to protect himself.
