Father, Son Charged After NJ Bar Fight About Eagles Leaves 2 Hurt

WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS/AP) — Police say a heated discussion about the Philadelphia Eagles in a New Jersey bar left two men injured and a father and son under arrest.

Winslow Township police responded to Joe’s Tavern on Thursday night and found 36-year-old Jamel Davis in the parking lot with head injuries and the tavern owner’s son, 26-year-old Ashish Joseph, with a broken nose.

They said their assailants had driven off.

Officers found 56-year-old Christopher Hoffman and his 32-year-old son, Brittan Holland, covered in blood in their home. Police say they told officers they engaged in a mutual fight.

Police say Hoffman was wearing Pittsburgh Steelers slippers and Holland admitted to being a Dallas Cowboys fan.

They’re charged with aggravated assault. It’s not known if they have lawyers.
