Sunday afternoon at a Fort Worth gas station, a man came at Jose Avila and his father with an ax and then an electric saw. From the Star-T report:
“Avila said he could not remember what was being said but only understood “You took” while he was raising the ax at him,” the report states. “Avila feared for his life and felt the male was going to harm him with the ax.”
DeLeon tried to come to his son’s defense, yelling at the man to stop.
The suspect then put his ax in the bed of his pickup and retrieved an electric saw, the report states.
“The male is grabbing it from the saw end and swings it at DeLeon and strikes him with it on the left side of his head, causing a laceration,” the report states.
Once they got the saw from him, the attacker said he was sorry, that he thought Avila was someone else, and he left.
So it was all a big misunderstanding, like some unholy mashup of Three’s Company and Breaking Bad.
