On 9 Jul 12 Deputy Sheriff Simmons responded to an altercation involving a thirty-seven year old Whipple resident and his seventeen year old son. The teenager was shouting and yelling profanities when his father grabbed him by the shoulders. When he released his son the father said it appeared the teenager was making a fist so he backhanded his son to get his attention. Witnesses confirmed the father’s account and stated there was no malicious intent. As a result, Deputy Simmons closed this case as unfounded.
