Watercooler talk
DELAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities said a man was put behind bars for using a tire iron to attack his brother over a pair of jeans. A sheriff's office report said a 23-year-old man and a 25-year-old man were arguing Thursday night over the pants. The argument escalated and punches were thrown.

The 23-year-old man then got the tire iron from a truck and struck his older brother in the back of the head and took off running. Authorities said he returned home and told deputies he felt bad about hitting his brother.

The 23-year-old was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. He was taken to jail where he was being held without bail Friday.
