Father And Son Brawl Over Trashed Legos
Duo jailed on battery raps following domestic scrape
OCTOBER 5--A Florida man’s decision to throw out his 19-year-old son’s Lego collection last night triggered a domestic brawl that ended with both combatants behind bars, police report.
Responding to an 11 PM domestic violence call at a Port St. Lucie residence, cops encountered Nicholas Melice, Sr. and his son, Nicholas Jr.. The elder Melice, 46, had been arguing with his son, cops noted, “over Mr. Melice Sr. throwing out Mr. Melice Jr.’s Lego’s.”
The dispute, both Melices acknowledged, turned physical and included the exchange of shoves and punches. The men each suffered scratches during the fight.
The younger Melice apparently discovered that his Legos had been trashed upon returning to his family’s home from his current residence in Jupiter.
“Both Mr. Melice and Mr. Melice Jr. advised they wished to pursue criminal charges,” reported a cop who added that he was unable to determine the scrape’s “primary aggressor.”
Seen above, the Melices were each booked into the county jail early this morning for misdemeanor battery. (2 pages)
