A Tennessee man needed to have his leg amputated after his son ran him over with a lawn mower. 76-year-old Douglas Ferguson has had an on-going feud with his son and on June 28, he attacked him with a running chainsaw while he was mowing the lawn.

Ferguson's son defended himself and ran over his father with the lawn mower, causing serious injuries. When police officers arrived they found Ferguson bleeding from his leg and head and rushed him to the hospital. Doctors had to amputate his leg and he remained in the hospital, preventing authorities from serving a warrant for his arrest.

After Ferguson recovered, he was arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder and violating his probation. He is being held in prison on a $25,000 bond.
