Lexington Man Arrested After Allegedly Threatening Dead Friend’s Dad with a Bat
Disagreement over a car apparently escalated, according to police.
Arguing over bequeathed belongings is one thing, but doing it with a wooden bat is a different story.
And that’s apparently what happened earlier this week on Bedford Street, leading to the arrest of a Lexington resident on charges that he grabbed a baseball bat and threatened his dead friend’s father after their disagreement escalated.
Christian R. Capone, 40, of 413 Bedford St., Lexington, was arrested Monday, July 16 and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon on a person older than 60.
Police were called to a Bedford Street residence around 8:40 a.m. that morning. A man there reported that he was at the home trying to retrieve a car that belonged to his deceased son, but an argument ensued, police said.
During the course of the argument, Capone reportedly retrieved a bat and waved it in a threatening manner toward the alleged victim, who is not from Lexington. Capone was friends with the deceased and believed the car had been left to him, police said.
Information in this report was provided by the Lexington Police Department. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.
