PORT ST. LUCIE -- An apparent family disagreement over lunch and name-calling turned into a violent confrontation involving a candleholder, guns and a bite to the arm, according to records released Monday.
Jason Matthew Werry, 26, faces felony charges of aggravated domestic battery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in connection with the 10:52 a.m. Sunday incidents at his parents’ home, which is also his listed address, in the 2200 block of Southeast Carnation Avenue.
Werry’s father, Jay Werry, said he and his wife planned to have lunch with her boss and that Jason Werry would have to make his own lunch. Jay Werry said his son grew angry at the notion of making his own lunch, according to police.
Jason Werry said his father referred to his grandmother with a curse word, which angered him, records stated.
Police gave this account of what followed:
Jason Werry hurled a candleholder at his father, hitting him in the head.
Jay Werry, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun on his son. Jason Werry hit his dad, and Jason Werry’s girlfriend gave Jason Werry a gun. Jason Werry pointed the weapon at his father and hit him in the head with the butt of the weapon.
Jay Werry bit his son on the left arm and both went to a hospital emergency room. Jay Werry had several loose teeth and two “gashes” on his head that required stitches.
“(Jay Werry) said he is afraid that when Jason gets out of jail, that Jason will come and kill him and his family,” a report states. “Jay is torn about what to do because his wife always takes sides with the kids.”
Jason Werry got a tetanus shot for his injury and was arrested and taken to jail.
