The Clay County Sheriff's Office said Michael Turner of Orange Park was angry at his son for taking Turner's daughter to get a tattoo so he twice tried to strike him with his car, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.
The arrest report said the teenager struck his father "in self-defense" through an open window of the vehicle, leading Turner to then swing at his son with a crowbar.
The boy's mother separated the pair before deputies arrived and arrested Turner, who deputies said sports several tattoos.
The report did not provide his daughter's age.
